General Information / History
This park was acquired as the result of a large urban renewal project in the unincorporated area of Elmwood Park. Several names for the park were proposed through a local school “Name the Park” contest. On July 17, 1968 the area was dedicated as Martin Luther King, Jr. County Park. 

A new master plan for the park was developed with public input from the community and the Park was completely redeveloped accordingly in 2001.

* This project is on hold due to the Government shutdown:
The lake and all boat ramps at Creve Couer Park will be closed to all activities starting 1/23 - 2/11 as part of the Asian Carp removal project. 
The trail at the boat ramp, as well the entire parking lot at the Sailboat Cove will be also be closed for the duration of the project. Large portions of the trail will still be available, but it will no longer be able to circumvent the lake. The timeline may change due to weather. For your safety, please adhere to all postings while at the park.


*Riverside trail at Simpson is open, however there is a 50 ft. section at the eastern end that had to be re-routed.  The footing is sand and dirt. Users should be cautious of sand smears across the trail after rain events.

* Unger Park roads are open to the Riverside Trail Parking lot, however, the Riverside Trail remains closed beyond this parking lot

* Sherman Beach and Al Foster Trails are passable but have areas with sand and debris on them.
