Petitioning National Park Service - LWCF Division

Save Creve Coeur Lake Park

Imagine 40 acres of Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park converted to a concrete and steel complex operated by private interests for professional sports franchises, colleges and hockey enthusiasts. That is the current proposal for parkland adjacent to Sailboat Cove and the big lake. We support hockey and facilities for its practice, but this project does not belong in this public park. Sign this petition and say no to converting 40 acres of your parkland to a 250,000 square foot, 4,500 seat multi-story hockey complex with 1,000+ parking spaces.

With over 1 million users annually, Creve Coeur Park is a precious gem for our region. We love it because it is a quiet space to enjoy the water, birds, trees, and natural environment. We use it for biking, birding, running, and boating. Converting 40 acres of Creve Coeur Lake Park to an indoor sports complex will only increase noise, light, traffic, and obstruct the views for those currently using the park.

Neither the public in general nor the County taxpayers specifically were given a chance to vote on this giveaway of public park land. Sign this petition and show your elected officials and the park department that you don’t want this facility in Creve Coeur Lake Park.

Flooding is a problem inside Creve Coeur Park. Twice in just the last 18 months, major portions of the Park have been under water, including the proposed site and Marine Avenue, the road that will be used to access the complex. Developers promise they can elevate the buildings above future floods, but the fill required will only displace more water leading to increased flooding in other areas of the park.

Sign this petition and say YES to Creve Coeur Park and NO to the proposal to convert 40 acres of public parkland to an indoor sports complex. If you love Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park the way it is, speak up!
