Fall on the arch grounds

ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – The St. Louis Gateway Arch Grounds is in the running for a big federal grant.

The National Parks Service turns 100 this year; to celebrate, several groups have partnered with the parks service to award approximately $2 million in grants to parks across the country via an online vote.

The Arch grounds are up for a quarter-million dollars of that money, which would be used to repair the overlooks at the north and south ends of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial.

At present, the Gateway Arch Grounds is in 16th place; only the top five qualify for the grant.
