*** Niekamp Park will be bustling on April 26 as St. Martins hosts its 3rd Annual
Tree Day at the Park. Students from St. Martin School will attend the event
that will be presented by Foresters Ann Koenig and Corey Gregg from the
Missouri Dept. of Conservation, Hentges Tree Service and Central Electric
Power Cooperative. Students will rotate between stations featuring experts tree planting, tree identification, tree climbing and tree safety. Earlier this
year, St. Martins received the Gold Leaf Award from the International Society
of Arboriculture for Outstanding Arbor Day Activities for the 2017
educational program at the park.
***After several unseasonable bouts of freezing weather, the restrooms & drinking fountains are once again functional at the Niekamp Park! The trees should be blooming soon so come out and walk the trail and enjoy the park. Dogs are welcome but must be on a leash and owners should clean up after their pets using the bags provided at pet stations along the trail.
*** The St. Martins Park Board is in the planning stages of a new Veteran's Memorial Flag Plaza to be located beside the trail just to the west of the park entrance. Public input is sought on the Plaza design. Contact City Administrator Doug Reece at 230-9105 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any suggestions or questions you may have.
*** Please use caution when using the trail during slippery conditions.
