Robert Brooks Park: 9600 Cote Brilliante Ave.
By the end of 2023, this 2.1 acres park will have one Pedestrian Walking Loop Trail, two Pedestrian Walking Bridges, a Bike Rack, a Playground, a Picnic Area, a Multipurpose Field, and Restroom Facilities.
*In January 2022 the City was awarded a Park Grant from the Municipal Park Grant Commission of St Louis County. The City of Overland, Missouri proposes the following improvements to Robert Brooks Park: Demolition and preparation of the existing site for future park amenities, installation of a multi-purpose field with grading and seeding of the turf field, installation of a pedestrian loop trail with two pre-engineered bridges to connect park patrons from Flora Ave and the existing parking lot, and additional tree landscape enhancements along the loop trail.
The City of Overland is committed to improving Robert Brooks Park through the installation of a multiuse field and a pedestrian loop trail with bridge connectivity. This 2.1 acre neighborhood park is surrounded by single family housing. Establishment of a multiuse field and pedestrian loop trail with bridge connectivity at this park creates an opportunity for family recreation in the community to learn and engage in a variety of activities within the parks system. This project is phase one of five in the City’s continuing efforts to improve its area park system for the community.
Construction for this project will commence July 5, 2023 and it is estimated to be completed by December 31, 2023.
