FORAY: Lower Meramec Park and Trail

The park consists of 273 acres and is a mixture of bottomland woodlands and open fields. The woods are highly diverse some of the best remaining woodlands in the Lower Meramec Valley. Burr Oak, Swamp White Oak, Pin Oak and Pecan attest to the rich diversity of the park. These large trees have bellowed tree trunks and water marks typical of trees that experience standing water. A small spring and wetland swamp occurs along Tall Timbers Trail. This unique natural community has great tree diversity and supports a host of wildlife from salamanders to woodducks. The open fields were used to raise agriculture crops and vegetables prior to becoming parkland. Today these fields have been planted with native grasses to retain the openness of the site.
