General Information / History
Lemay Park is located in a section of the River Des Peres floodplain originally developed as a residential neighborhood from the 1870s until about 1910. These buildings were purchased and removed following extensive damage in the Great Flood of 1993. The park turned a disaster into a community asset.

It was dedicated in October, 1996 by Vice President Al Gore during his campaign for re-election. Park facilities have been specifically designed to withstand future flooding.

Riverside trail at Simpson is open, however there is a 50 ft. section at the eastern most end that had to be re-routed and the footing is sand and dirt. Also, users should be cautious of sand smears across trail after rain events.

Unger Park is open to the shelter parking lot, but the trail is closed beyond the riverside parking lot

Sherman Beach and Al Foster trails are passable but have areas with sand and debris on them

* The Bottomland Trail along Grant's Trail was severely damaged during periods of heavy rain. For safety reasons, this short trail has been closed. Plans are being developed to relocate the trail away from Gravois Creek.
