You’re invited to join us the morning of June 3, 2023, as we celebrate the groundbreaking for a new biking & walking trail at the Ted and Pat Jones Confluence Point State Park in West Alton, MO.

Funded by a gift from the Trust of Pat Jones, the Trustees of her estate have worked with Missouri State Parks to create the first ever Trailhead area and bike path at the Confluence. This new walking and biking path, which will be constructed on the levee along the Mississippi River at Confluence Point, is a great addition to the Ted and Pat Jones Confluence Point State Park—a place Pat helped to dedicate almost twenty years ago.

At this event, guests will spend time volunteering by planting prairie grasses following a brief program and a tour of the new trail.
