General Information / History
The Mathilda-Welmering Park site was purchased in 1960 and opened in 1961 with funds from the 1959 Bond Issue. The name of the park comes from the two adjacent streets, which in turn were named for earlier land owners.

The playground was rebuilt in 2002.

Parks closed due to flooding:
Al Foster Trail
Sherman Beach and Chubb Trails along the river are no longer under water, but are sandy and muddy with debris blocking places.

*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

* The Bottomland Trail along Grant's Trail was severely damaged during periods of heavy rain. For safety reasons, this short trail has been closed. Plans are being developed to relocate the trail away from Gravois Creek.
