Former Confederate Drive at Forest Park.

 

St. Louis, MO. August 22 – Forest Park’s Confederate Drive is being removed. During the eclipse, while eyes were skyward, the St. Louis Streets Department was focused on the park’s ground. Workers began to remove Confederate Drive, that lead to where the confederate memorial was located before it was removed in June.

The city says it’s spending nearly $12,000 to add plants, flowers and grass. Work should end by next week.
