*** 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 email@example.com with any suggestions or questions you may have.
*** Though the Trail is open year round, Niekamp Park officially closes November 1 or when the temperature consistently falls below freezing and the restrooms & drinking fountain must be winterized.
*** Please use caution when using the trail during slippery conditions
*** A bike rack has now been added near the park entrance.
*** Two pet clean-up stations have been added along the trail. Pets on a leash are welcome in Niekamp Park but please clean up after them.
*** Hentges Tree Service has removed 10 stumps, several dead limbs and one
dead tree from the Park.
*** The Missouri Department of Conservation awarded St. Martins a tree
grant to help us replace some of the mature trees we have lost in the last
few years. Longfellow's Nursery has now planted 18 large growing trees
and 14 flowering trees. The new trees all have blue watering buckets.
*** FREE "HAUL YOUR OWN" MULCH - Free mulch is available for the taking on Clarose between Business 50 West and where Clarose dead- ends at 50 Highway.
*** Central Electric Power Cooperative has donated $500 to assist with the planting of the new trees in Niekamp Park.
*** Electricity has been added to the small pavilion so both the large pavilion and the small pavilion will be available to rent when the Park opens on April 1. Contact Jane Morff at 893-3463 if you are interested in reserving a pavilion for your gathering.
