Logan University and the City of Chesterfield Begin Breaking Ground on Logan Park
On Monday August 16, 2021, Logan University and the City of Chesterfield celebrated a collaborative effort to develop and open a brand-new park in Ward III. The park will be named Logan Park and will become the first park within Ward III. Logan Park is located adjacent to Schoettler Road, just south of the entrance to Logan University.
Chesterfield Mayor Bob Nation, said, “I’m so proud and pleased to have the opportunity to provide a park for the residents of Chesterfield in cooperation with Logan University. There are so many people I’d like to thank. Congratulations to the residents of Chesterfield, especially those who live in this ward.”
The City of Chesterfield will begin Phase One construction immediately, while Phase Two will follow depending upon funding. Mayor Nation said, “Phase One will include the playground, pavilion, bathrooms, and parking lot. Future Phase Two is expected to include trails, native gardens with educational signage, additional shade structures for the playground, landscaping, picnic tables, two pickleball courts, and open green space. Thanks to Logan for all their support and collaboration. This would not be possible without them.”
Dr. McDonald of Logan University responded saying, “We are very excited to partner with the City of Chesterfield on this project. It’s not only a tremendous opportunity for the residents, but for the Logan community as well. The City has been wonderful to work with and we look forward to enjoying the amenities for many years.”
