About Us

The Gateway Center of Metropolitan St. Louis is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit located in St. Louis, Missouri. The nonprofit was incorporated in 1969. The Gateway Center's primary mission is to support the National Park Service in expanding the Gateway Arch National Park into Illinois via Malcolm W. Martin Memorial Park and other lands adjacent to it. Our secondary mission is to provide funding to Metro East Park and Recreation District (MEPRD) for Malcolm W. Martin Memorial Park until the park is donated by MEPRD to the National Park Service as part of the Illinois Expansion.

Board of Directors

The Gateway Center of Metropolitan St. Louis is guided by a volunteer Board of Directors comprised of a diverse, passionate, and dedicated group of leaders. We are proud of their leadership and dedication to the organization.
