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.
