General Information / History

John and Mary Love were successful business leaders and conservationists. The family began to donate parcels of land to St. Louis County in 1959. The final donation provided that 15 acres of the park remain in a natural condition. The two picnic shelters were named after the Love children, Mary and Cynthia, "Muffin". The park was dedicated in October, 1968.

In the spring of 1989 the park entrance was redesigned to improve traffic flow and the general appearance. A new playground replaced older ones in the early 1990s.
