The southern half of the park site was purchased by the city in January of 1962 at a cost of $55,250 from the St. Louis Board of Education, who sold the city the northern half of the contiguous site for $55,250 in August, 1963, following a fire which destroyed the Dunnica School building. Funds for the purchase of the site came from the 1944 and 1955 bond issues.

Amberg Park was designed by Landscape Architect, Robert E. Goetz and Associates in 1966 and construction began during January, 1967.

The park was named in honor of Richard H. Amberg (1912-1967) for his personal distinction and his contributions to the parks and playgrounds of the city. He also served as publisher of the Globe Democrat.

This review is based on visiting the playground with my 16-month-old. ~The street parking is very near to the playground ~The playground is fenced in, which is good because the intersection is busy. It is also adjacent to a pair of baseball fields, making it a good place for siblings who aren't on the team to play. ~Great equipment that is unfortunately poorly maintained; the playground seems neglected ~Intermittent foot traffic and an influx of children kept the place lively ~While there are no facilities, there is an Express Lane food shop on the corner 6.5 out of 10

It's a laid-back kind of park, somewhere to go if you want to just chill and get your thoughts together I highly recommend it
