The Emma L Wilson King Memorial Fountain at Jones Park Lagoon

The fall, or October 2022 is significant because this will mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of our namesake, Mrs. Emma L Wilson King. What a befitting way to mark her centennial birth year as well as integrating our goals connecting this eco-tourist site with the on-going rebuilt World War I and II memorials under construction at Jones Park’s entrance at 25th and Argonne Drive. When complete, the Lily-Pond fountain will assist students across the Metro-East with its unique new horticulture and water gardening program at its lily-pads as well as draw tourist from across the metropolitan area to the largest lily-pond fountain in the St. Louis region.
