In November of 2000, citizens all across St Louis County approved a new sales tax to help improve, restore and expand their municipal parks and recreation programs. As a result of their votes, the municipal park grant commission of St Louis County was formed and charged with keeping the promise made to taxpayers:

To put their money to work where it counts - in the hearts of their communities.

It's a promise kept to the children on the playground, the teenagers playing ball, the senior citizens on the walking path and the families picnicking. It's a promise kept every day in parks throughout St Louis County.
