Aboussie Park was established in 1981 and is located near Sidney and 13th Street, and just east of the chain link fence on the I-55 easement. The stretch of Interstate that Aboussie Park lines, is probably most recognizable by the shuttered 'Hi-Way Bar' visible just south of the Sidney overpass.
Recognized as the smallest of all city parks, covering a mere 0.4 acre, this park is surrounded by well-kept St. Louis brick homes with manicured front lawns and gardens.
This park does provide an area to walk the dog, a place to sit/rest and a small set of trees and shrubs to attract birds and other small wildlife. One thing you can't help but notice while walking in the park was the smells of coniferous trees and perennial flowers meshing with the smells of barley from the ABI brewery...another great organic scent...one truly unique to this part of town.
The park has several nice benches and logically placed trash cans. There are also bike racks to secure your bike.
