Missouri State Parks and state historic sites will host several informational meetings in 2017 in order to gain public feedback about its operations.
The meetings, which will be offered at state parks throughout Missouri, are open to the public. For a list of meeting dates and locations, visit mostateparks.gov. Questions and requests may also be e-mailed to [email protected].
The Missouri State Park system, which was founded April 9, 1917, recently celebrated its 100th birthday and now encompasses 91 state parks and historic sites. The system is supported by a one-tenth-of-one-percent parks, soils and water sales tax, which was renewed by voters in 2016.
Earlier this year, Missouri State Parks opened a new state park in the St. Louis region. Don Robinson State Park, located near Cedar Hill, expands outdoor recreational opportunities in the St. Louis region with more than 800 acres of hiking trails and picnic areas.
