Eberwein Park opened in the City of Chesterfield on September 1, 2011. There is a dog park within the 18-acre Eberwein Park, at Old Baxter Road and Highcroft Drive, and it has proven to be very popular with residents. Chesterfield is committed to sustainability and being friendly to the environment and decided that installing native plantings to the park would be a good ecological choice. Almost two years ago, Native Landscape Solutions, Inc. was hired to clean up a one acre site and to seed a native wildflower prairie. Establishing a prairie requires special knowledge, equipment and skilled employees – all trademarks of Native Landscape Solutions, Inc. We have posted a picture of the prairie that was taken recently and it is easy to see how beautiful it is already. It takes new prairies three or four years to really get going and we are proud of the rapid development of this project. We are maintaining the prairie with a custom stewardship program that allows the good plants to thrive while minimizing problems with weedy, invasive plants. Next time you are in the area, stop by and enjoy beautiful Eberwein Park.
