DOG TAG APPLICATION

RENEW DOG TAGS AT CITY HALL ONLY
At the time of purchasing dog tags at City Hall, you will need all of the following: 

  • Proof of residency (driver's license, unpaid utility bill, etc)
  • Record of dog's spay/neuter
  • Record of current Rabies shot

This 18-acre park is named after the Eberwein family who first settled in Chesterfield over 100 years ago. The Eberwein family used this land as a farm and their residence up until the time of purchase by the city. To preserve the history, character, and charm of the site, the Eberwein Park was designed as a passive community park with a farm-like theme. To accomplish this, the existing large red barn, which was originally constructed in the early 1900s, has been preserved.

PUBLIC ART
The Coyote
“The Coyote” is a life-size bronze sculpture depicting a coyote standing in heightened awareness of his surroundings. Weber created the sculpture as part of a large diorama with the famous Lewis and Clark sculpture depicting their journey across the river as the coyote watches with full attention. Two casts of the coyote were made and the other is located at the Drury Plaza at Market and Broadway with the Lewis and Clark sculpture. Weber’s work embodies human emotion and power with a spontaneity developed from a lifelong habit of sketching from life.

Dog Days
“Dog Days” is a fiberglass chair beautifully painted in acrylic to reflect the fun and carefree nature of dogs in the spirit of play within the Dog Park. The artist, Michelle Streiff, a volunteer with Stray Rescue of St. Louis, used her own beloved Jack Russell Terriers and the many wonderful shelter dogs as her inspiration for the piece.

Granny's Garden
Artists Lee Leuning and Sherri Treeby create a lovable figure with their piece "Granny's Garden". “Everyone has a relative like granny. This life-sized sculpture was created in2008 and measures 5.5'x3'x3'... From the overflowing apron of fresh vegetables to the loving smile on granny's face, you just feel at home when you see this sculpture.” Lee and Treeby work mostly with bronze and first begin creating pieces using clay, which is later put through the bronzing process. This process includes making mold from the clay model out of rubber. Lee and Treeby create “Americana” sculptures in their art studio, Bad River Artworks, located in South Dakota.

NATIVE PRAIRIE GARDEN
Eberwein Park has an interactive native prairie that provides quality habitat and food sources for local wildlife, especially our pollinators. The Chesterfield Parks, Recreation & Arts Department received a Community Stewardship Grant through the Missouri Department of Conservation to create the prairie that will also incorporate walking paths throughout, and provide opportunities for learning about the plants, animals, and insects that share our parks.  

TRAIL
Eberwein Park has a detailed map of a walking, biking and running trail route available for download.

BAT BOX
Walking around the park, you may have seen the Bat Box installed on the east side of the barn at Eberwein Park. The Bat Box allow bats, sometimes hundreds, to sleep so that they are not exposed to the elements. The overall goal is to attract the bats so that they will feed on mosquitoes and other bugs.  The Bat Box was created and installed by local Boy Scout Troops.
