General Information / History
The original Suson tract was purchased by the County from Sidney Salomon, Jr., in 1962. Salomon was a well-known figure in St. Louis at the time as owner of the old Sportsman’s Park. In 1966, he acquired the Arena and became the first owner of the St. Louis Blues hockey team. The name of this park originated with Salomon as a combination of his children’s names, Susan and Sonny. The park was dedicated and opened to the public in May 1964.

Park Postings:

(As of 1/18/18 8:50 a.m.)

* Belle West will be closed to vehicular traffic due to a water main break in the area. We are unsure of a time frame for reopening at this time

* The lake and all boat ramps at Creve Couer Park will be closed to all activities starting 1/23 - 2/11 as part of the Asian Carp removal project.

The trail at the boat ramp, as well the entire parking lot at the Sailboat Cove will be also be closed for the duration of the project. Large portions of the trail will still be available, but it will no longer be able to circumvent the lake.

The timeline may change due to weather. For your safety, please adhere to all postings while at the park.

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

* Unger Park roads are open to the Riverside Trail Parking lot, however, the Riverside Trail remains closed beyond this 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.

* The east side of Cliff Cave Road including the field, River Bluff Trail and Spring Valley Trail are closed at Cliff Cave Park for construction.
