Since 2001 when Lake Drummond was dedicated with the opening of Close Memorial Park, this urban water refuge has provided tranquil walks, beautiful views and spots to stop and sit a spell for many thousands of visitors.
The lake was named for AnneCase Drummond, a civic force who inspired and mentored generations of Ozarks women.Her likeness is memorialized in bronze sitting on a park bench lakeside near the garden’s southern entrance.
In 2014, the City’s Public Works Department completed a major stabilization and beautification project at Lake Drummond. It looks better than ever now, with the path around it passing through drifts of spring bulbs, the Woodland Garden, the EnglishGarden and access to the South Creek Greenway.
