Mort Jacobs Park: Corner of Krem & Clarendon Avenues
Update April 24, 2017: Back in November 2016 the City of Overland Parks & Recreation Department was awarded a St Louis County Municipal Park Grant regarding the renovation of the Mort Jacobs Park Playground in the amount of $386,700. This grant is solely dedicated to the installation of a new playground at Mort Jacobs Park in 2017. At this time, the Department Staff anticipates construction of the playground starting around June/July 2017.
Please Note: the Kids Summer Camp Program will be located at Norman Myers Park this year due to construction going on at Mort Jacobs Park.
