The City of St. Peters has 25 parks covering about 1,200 acres of land, including more than 27 miles of recreation trails, playgrounds, picnic shelters and pavilions, athletic fields, golf course, archery range, BMX track, fishing ponds, and landscape areas. Three out of four St. Peters residents live within a half mile of a park or trail and nine out of 10 residents live within a mile of a park or trail.
City of St. Peters Parks are open from sunrise to sunset, unless otherwise specified on a Park Use Permit. A pocket park is a small park accessible to the public. Pocket parks are frequently created on a single vacant lot and sometimes feature a monument, historic marker or art project. Although they are too small for physical activities, pocket parks provide greenery and a place to sit outdoors.
