History of Lilac Way and the Beehive Parks
June 10, 2017 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Highway 100 originated as a New Deal project in the 1930s. The idea to have small parks along the route became popular, and citizens contributed funds for lilac plants. Seven parks along “Lilac Way” featured picnic tables and distinctive fireplaces called beehives. Kathy Johnson of the St. Louis Park Historical Society will tell the story of the road’s rich history. We’ll enjoy one of the remaining beehive parks, Lilac Park, with a boxed lunch option. Carpooling will be available.
