General Information / History
Queeny Park was once part of the estate of the late Mr. and Mrs. Edgar M. Queeny. Mr. Queeny was the former president and chairman of the board of Monsanto Chemical Company, which was founded by his father.

Jarville, the house at 1723 Mason Road, was built about 1854 by Hyacinth Renard, and is one of the best surviving examples of the Greek Revival style in Missouri. The house was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.

The Queenys sold their property to the American Investment Company Realty Corporation in 1964, giving the proceeds to Barnes Hospital. St. Louis County purchased the property from the American Investment Company in March, 1970.

Ethel Queeny contributed $1 million towards the completion of the family recreation complex. Edward Greensfelder, who represents the Albert P. Greensfelder Foundation, also donated $1 million for the project, along with an additional $50,000 for landscaping. Construction of the Greensfelder Memorial Complex began June, 1972 and was dedicated in September, 1974. 

The playground, completed in September 1974 and featuring a supervised, innovative strategy, was designed by Roland W. McFarland through a bequest by Ethel S. Queeny.
