Parks Help Make St. Peters Great!
If you’ve ever spent time on real estate sites and found listings for homes in the City of St. Peters, you’ll most likely see a selling point about the home being near “great St. Peters parks, trails and Rec-Plex” or simply stating: “Desirable St. Peters neighborhood!” In fact, the real estate website Zillow.com reported this spring that St. Peters was the second-best sellers market in the St. Louis region.
Folks, it’s no secret—we’ve got it really good in our beautiful City of St. Peters. And, part of this is because we have some of the best amenities our area has to offer. In fact, we have more than 20 miles of trails, almost 1,300 acres of parkland and the 236,000-square-foot St. Peters Rec-Plex.
Chances are, you live near a park or one of our pedestrian/bicycle trails. In St. Peters 9 out of 10 St. Peters residents live within one mile of a park or trail. And, 3 out of 4 are within a half-mile of a park or trail. What better way to enjoy a beautiful day in St. Peters than to walk the trail, or take the kids to a playground, or enjoy one of our many athletic fields?
Our newest park, 370 Lakeside Park, opened to the public four years ago, and has become very popular with nature lovers and campers. At 300 acres, it’s the biggest municipal park in St. Charles County. The 140-acre lake offers fishing, boating, archery, RV campgrounds, primitive campgrounds and the perfect venue for City events. And, it’s perfect for hiking and biking, with a 4.5-mile trail around the lake.
Be sure to bring the family out to our FREE Kite Festival, Family Bike Ride and Health & Wellness Event at 370 Lakeside Park on Saturday, May 9, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
And, check out our new venue for Sunset Fridays concerts at 370 Lakeside Park’s Corporate Pavilion starting in May. Relax along the lake, listen to live music and take in a FREE spectacular sunset! The first concerts are on May 22 and 29. Music starts playing at about 6:30 p.m.
And, let’s not forget about our Veterans Memorial at St. Peters City Hall. The memorial is another important part of our parks system, and another important amenity for our community. I’m proud to announce that after the Memorial Day Ceremony on May 25 at 10 a.m., we’ll also dedicate a Veterans Memorial Plaza in front of City Hall. Please come out and pay tribute to all of the men and women of the Armed Forces who have given their lives in service of their country!
These types of community events are the extras that we provide our residents, in addition to all of our wonderful parks and trails, that make St. Peters such a great place to live!
