The public is strongly encouraged to follow social-distancing guidelines and be proactive in protecting themselves and others amid ongoing public health concerns. Come prepared with hand sanitizer and bottled water, avoid large and congested crowds, and please stay home if sick. Face coverings are encouraged when social-distancing measures are difficult to maintain.

On behalf of Missouri State Parks, the public is invited to attend a public meeting and ribbon cutting ceremony at Grand Gulf State Park on Saturday, Oct. 17. We are proud to present improvements made to the park, including construction of a new overlook platform and installation of eight new interpretive panels. The ribbon cutting ceremony to showcase these improvements will begin at 9:45 a.m.

The public meeting to discuss issues related to Grand Gulf State Park will start at 10 a.m., directly following the ribbon cutting. Park staff will be on hand to provide information about the park and answer questions. Guests are encouraged to share comments about the park and its operations.

Input from the public is important to the department. These informational meetings, which are being held in all state parks and historic sites, help create a two-way communication. The meetings give staff the opportunity to let people know the current status and future plans for the park or site, and they offer visitors the opportunity to comment on the facilities.
