This historic landmark has become a Pacific city park and was re-dedicated on Memorial Day, May 30, 2016, exactly 77 years after the landmark’s original grand opening. Jensen Point was acquired and rehabilitated by the City of Pacific in 2015, after being closed to the public for almost 25 years.
Jensen Point was originally built in 1939 by the Civilian Conservation Corps. It was named after Lars Peter Jensen, the first manager of Shaw’s Garden, now part of the Missouri Botanical Garden. Mr. Jensen was also the president of the Henry Shaw Gardenway Association.
21 Design Group provided all of the land surveying services, engineering services, and construction management for the property acquisition and new parking lot improvements at Jensen’s Point. 21 Design Group worked closely with the City of Pacific to develop the first ever grant application through the Municipal Parks Grant Commission of St. Louis County. The City of Pacific was awarded $350,000.00 to make the Jensen Point project a reality.

Jason Pellin with 21 Design Group gave a presentation on Land Surveying at the Union High School Career Day on October 22, 2015 in Union, Missouri. The 20 minute presentation gave the students information on the education and training needed to become a Land Surveyor, as well as the earning potential and related careers. Union High School organized approximately 3,600 career and college sessions for their students on Career Day.
Jason was one of 12 individuals who were awarded the 2015 Outstanding Young Professional Award by the Washington Area Chamber of Commerce. This is the third class of young professionals to be recognized. The recipients were selected based on three questions:
· How has the nominee gone above and beyond the call of duty for their employment position?
· What sets the nominee apart from other young professionals?
· What participation, involvement, or leadership roles has the nominee held in their community?
The awards were presented at a special luncheon held by the Washington Chamber on September 28, 2015 at the Knights of Columbus in Washington, Missouri.
Groups of families and friends, both young and old, worked together to build their own carefully designed “engineering feat” using only spaghetti, marshmallows and tape. The contestants had 45 minutes to assemble their creations. A very heated competition ensued, with some utilizing “blueprints” and others their imaginations. Judging was extremely difficult, to say the least. The first place prize was awarded to the Charlotte’s Web team.
Can’t wait to see what this year brings at the Washington Town and Country Fair (This Year’s Theme: Family Tradition)
