Named in honor of Charlotte Rumbold who was superintendent of public playgrounds and recreation in the St. Louis Parks Department from 1906 to 1915.

Ms. Rumbold was an early progressive and activist and a straight up amazing woman. Born in Belleville, Illinois (my beloved hometown) and educated in New York and Europe, she moved to St. Louis where she was a colleague of Jane Addams a fellow advocate and pioneer of urban playgrounds. Rumbold's motto was, "If we play together, we will work together."
