Celebrate the reopening of the new riverfront beneath the Gateway Arch at Picnic on the Riverfront, St. Louis' largest-ever community picnic.
During the event on Thursday, June 2, picnickers can experience the first stage of the Arch ground’s historic transformation project, which will make it easier and safer to access and visit the landmark, its museum and its attractions. The renovation includes new biking and pedestrian paths separate from the roadway, all-new lighting, and new amenities, such as benches, power outlets and a street-level stage – all while preserving the area’s historic elements. The majority of the landscaping will be finished in the fall, with the rest of the renovation project to be completed in 2017.
“Picnic on the Riverfront” features a variety of family-friendly events after the public grounds ribbon-cutting at 5 p.m., including an interfaith blessing, music from pianist Ethan Leinwand as well as Good 4 the Soul, kids’ educational activities, and a fireworks display at 8:30. Bring your own picnic basket or build your meal from a number of St. Louis’s favorite food trucks before taking a walk or bike trip around the new grounds.
