Friends of Lucas Park is comprised of Downtown residents working to improve and beautify our
neighborhood park. We had a very successful 2012 with the installation of a new playground as well
as sod and some landscaping. In 2013 we completed the installation of a new sprinkler system, planted
landscaping throughout the park and installed fitness equipment for ages 5 and up! It was a busy 2 years
and now we are getting ready to open up the park for use. For more information please contact us at the email
on the side of the page. Thanks for checking out Friends of Lucas Park!

First Work Day of the Year!

With temperatures starting to warm up we are getting excited about the re-opening of Lucas Park. All major improvements, minus a Spring fertilizing, are complete and fences will come down this April.  

Our monthly clean-ups will start up again on March 22 and will be the 4th Saturday of every month at 9:00am.  Please try to make as many of these as possible.  We work for only an hour and as we found last year, a clean park is a safe park.  

Monthly Park Clean-up

Our monthly park clean up will be Nov. 23rd from 9am-10am.  We will be focusing on raking up the fallen leaves as well as litter pick-up.  This will be our last clean up for the year so please make an effort to come lend a hand.

Halloween Costume Party Play Date

Join us on Saturday Nov. 2nd from 10am-12pm
in Lucas Park for a 
Halloween Costume Party Play Date
Let the kiddos wear their costumes one more time while they burn off some of their Halloween candy.

Time to Celebrate

One year ago tomorrow over one hundred volunteers gathered in Lucas Park to do something amazing. On that day a park was transformed and has become much more than a playground. It has become a meeting place for parents and a backyard to all of downtown. We are incredibly grateful to everyone who has donated their time and money to bringing this much needed change to our neighborhood. Downtown St. Louis, join us to celebrate this morning from 10am-12pm. We will have face painting with Kristen from Thirteenth and Washington, story time with Miss Jonesey from Left Bank Books, games with the Downtown St. Louis YMCA, and of course snacks!

If you haven't yet check out our 2012 year in review to see this amazing transformation.
