Fremont Park getting polish in Benton Park
Confusing headline huh? I guess it should really read “Fremont Park in the South St. Louis neighborhood of Benton Park in the midst of upgrades.” Because that is what it is getting. Over the last few days crews have removed most of the sidewalks at the 2.31 acres park, which is located on the south side of Lynch Street between McNair and Salena.
I have been unable to determine the exact nature and extend of the improvements, but it seems that the sidewalks will all be replaced at a minimum. The current layout of the park consists of a softball field, a playground, and a couple of open spaces with benches. There isn’t much too it, but its nice to see Fremont getting some attention, considering the fact that there are two larger parks in the neighborhood (Benton Park and Cherokee Park).
