General Information / History

In February 1974 the Alberici Company donated 93 acres of land to St. Louis County for park purposes. The park was originally named Meramec Bend County Park. In the fall of 1975, at the request of Alberici, the name of the park was changed to Edmund F. Unger Memorial County Park. The Park was opened to the public on March 31, 1979.
