The Bittersweet Woods Conservation Area was expanded in 2017 based upon a donation of property adjacent to Brighton Heights Subdivision. As with Phantom Forest and the rest of Bittersweet Woods, the Missouri Department of Conservation owns the property, but is maintained by the City. A small parking area is being constructed in Brighton Heights in order to provide access for the citizens of Des Peres.
Project Update and Schedule
This project was designed in 2017, and now that it has gained approval from the Department of Conservation, it will be constructed in spring of 2018. The project is currently out to bid.
