City of Clayton Dedicates Moneta Garden in Shaw Park
CLAYTON, MO, (SLFP.com), June 3, 2014 - On Wednesday, June 11, the City of Clayton will dedicate the new Moneta Garden in Shaw Park. The creation of the garden was made possible through a gift to the Clayton Century Foundation from Moneta Group, LLC, a wealth management firm located just across the street from the garden at Brentwood and Carondelet, and their charitable foundation, Moneta Group Charitable Foundation.
"It is so important that we as a firm continue to give back to the Clayton community," stated Gene Diederich, Moneta Group's CEO, in a release. "We decided to sponsor the Moneta Garden because it is comforting to know that in the midst of this business district there is a place that can provide busy professionals with a spot to relax and enjoy nature."
The garden, which will serve as a relaxing oasis for visitors and corporate and residential citizens, enhances the new Shaw Park Recreational Trail with plantings native to Missouri and artwork by world-renowned artist and Clayton-born Ernest Trova. The shining sculpture, Geometric Abstract # 2, which is part of Trova's exploration of the abstract in the 1970's, adds to the contemplative landscape of the garden, fits seamlessly into the space, and is a significant addition to Clayton's public art collection.
"We are extremely grateful to outstanding corporate citizens like the Moneta Group," said Mayor Harold Sanger. "The whole community benefits from the addition of amenities like the Moneta Garden."
Officials will be on hand at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, June 11 to cut the ribbon and dedicate the garden, which is located north of Tree Top Playground along the Shaw Park Recreational Trail. Prior to the dedication, guests are invited to enjoy light morning refreshments beginning at 8:30 a.m.
Upscale condominiums and tall, contemporary office buildings frame the central business district of Clayton. This area, located between Maryland Avenue on the north, Shaw Park to the west and Forest Park Blvd along the south, is headquarters to many Fortune 500 companies.
Visitors and residents can browse through a fine selection of art galleries, bookstores and specialty boutiques. Several wine shops, jewelers, florists and music stores and numerous antique shops can be found. For business travelers and vacationers, Clayton offers outstanding accommodations and is only 15 minutes from Lambert-St. Louis International Airport, and just 10 minutes from downtown St. Louis.
Dining in Clayton is a gourmet delight with over 65 restaurants. Spend a leisurely afternoon at one of many outdoor cafes or enjoy elegant dining by candlelight at a fine restaurant. Each year, the downtown Clayton area hosts special events including the 'Taste of Clayton' food festival, 'Parties in the Park', the 'Saint Louis Art Fair' and 'Gallery Nights in Clayton.'
