The public is invited to bring their ideas to an open house on Thursday, Sept. 19 at Robertsville State Park. The open house will be from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the shelter in the day-use area.

Recent accomplishments at the park and future plans will be highlighted at the open house. Visitors are invited to share comments on the park’s services and operations. This open house is part of an ongoing effort by Missouri State Parks to ensure citizens have input on facilities and services offered in state parks and historic sites.

A visit to Robertsville State Park is also a great opportunity to log miles as a part of the Governor’s 100 Missouri Miles challenge. To celebrate Missouri’s distinction as the “Best Trails State” by American Trails and to encourage Missourians to enjoy the outdoors, Governor Jay Nixon and First Lady Georganne Nixon are inviting Missourians to join them in completing 100 Missouri Miles of outdoor physical activity by the end of the year. For more information and to take the Challenge, visit 100MissouriMiles.com. Participants can also share adventures, post photos and learn about upcoming events by connecting with 100 Missouri Miles on Facebook and Twitter.

Individuals requiring special services or accommodations to attend the meeting can make arrangements by calling Robertsville State Park at 636-257-3788.
