Now that summer is approaching, I hope everyone will have more time to enjoy the outdoors in Crestwood’s Parks. At the Crestwood Aquatic Center in Whitecliff Park, you can enjoy a multi-purpose lap pool with two diving boards, lazy river, family play pool with three slides, climbing wall, and a zero depth beach area among other things. In addition to the pool’s amenities, Crestwood staff offers a wide range of Aquatics Fitness Classes from June through August. Aquatic Center individual and family membership passes are available to Crestwood residents at a discounted rate, and pass holders may bring up to four paid guests daily. Information about membership passes and aquatic fitness classes can be found in the Crestwood RecConnect Guide on the City Website.

Additionally, be sure to check out Crestwood’s Summer Series events, including Movies in the Park, Books in the Park, and Concerts in the Park! More details and a full schedule are provided on page 3 of this newsletter.

Crestwood is continuously working to upgrade its parks. One exciting piece of news I am happy to announce is that Crestwood has been preliminarily awarded a $125,000 Land and Water Conservation Fund grant. The funds from this grant will enable us to construct new features at the quarry area in Whitecliff Park. This has been a project the City has wanted to pursue for 20 years since our 1999 Whitecliff Park Master Plan! The City is still awaiting the official notice to proceed from the National Park Service and Missouri Department of Natural Resources, which is expected in September or October of this year. Upon receipt, the City will have 12 months to begin construction on the project,

which we expect will include at minimum the construction of a boardwalk along the quarry edge.

Lastly, the comprehensive renovation of Rayburn Park is almost complete. This project was also completed with the assistance of a grant from the Municipal Parks Commission which covered 85% of the cost. The grand re-opening of Rayburn Park will take place on Saturday, June 15th at 10 a.m. We hope to see you there!

I hope everyone has a safe and happy summer, and are able to enjoy some of the many events and programs offered here in Crestwood!
