A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held near the day-use area playground at Meramec State Park to celebrate the opening of two new playgrounds within the park. DG2 Design created the Day Use Playground, which features a bay of swings, a disk swing, a long seat wall for relaxation and observation, and a large play structure with multiple climbing points and a slide. The park also now boasts additional parking, a wheelchair-accessible walkway, and an updated basketball court. The campground playground includes a smaller climbing structure with multiple slides, a viewing scope, and swings. DG2 Design collaborated closely with Missouri State Parks staff to submit design plans to cultural resources, ensuring the protection of any historical artifacts that might have been discovered during construction.

When designing a site for a police station or any mission-critical building, it is essential to balance protection and aesthetics.

Seven years ago, on July 8, 2016, Ballwin officer Mike Flamion was shot in the line of duty during a traffic stop. On Saturday, the community and the Ballwin Police Department gathered to dedicate their new police station in his honor. Every officer has a DSN, or serial number. Mike Flamion’s is 302, and the new police facility’s address is 302 Kehrs Mill Road.

Construction on this state-of-the-art facility began last spring. It represents a significant upgrade from the previous building, which was not only outdated and undersized but also lacked many modern amenities expected in a city police department.
