Enjoy Our City’s Beauty
Fall is the perfect time to enjoy the great places our City has to offer. Take a walking tour with me to see some of the beauty our 26 parks have to offer as we begin on the journey of our 27-plus miles of trails connecting all four wards of the City. If the starting point is City Hall, take in the beauty of our gazebo and fountain that has the beautiful colors of the season surrounding the trails that lead throughout our City. We have several areas that you can stop to rest, and having WiFi throughout our City you are always connected via your phone if you would need any type of assistance if an emergency arose. So many of our subdivisions have easy access to our parkland and our city is honored once again as a 23-year recipient of the Tree City USA award. Green space is what attracts people to an area where we can just stop to have a picnic, or sit awhile and just take in Mother Nature’s many gifts. If you spread your tour of the walking out to several outings, you can connect to the Woodlands Sports Park and after walking or biking under Mexico Road, you can end up at our beautiful golf course. Our trail system is one of the many reasons our City was chosen as one of the Best Places to Live by Money Magazine.
Another crown jewel St. Peters offers is our Cultural Arts Centre. Have you ever just stopped in to check out the beautiful artwork that greets you in the main hall from the City Hall west entrance? You will be amazed at the talent of our artists! These works of art along with handmade jewelry and other items are available to purchase and make unique gifts for the art lover. We also offer classes and many exhibits along with the very popular bus rides and dance opportunities that were sorely missed during the 2020 pandemic.
I encourage you to try something new this season in your own hometown. We have lots to offer and you will be amazed at what we may have in the future!
As always it is my privilege to serve you and please call me or email me anytime with your concerns & suggestions. Happy fall ya all!

Fun Times at 370 Lakeside Park!
Have you ever checked out a Sunset Fridays concert at 370 Lakeside Park? Many people in our community have discovered that these events are a wonderful way to end the work week, and they’re a great date night idea. Plus, the price is right: FREE admission! The atmosphere at the park’s Corporate Pavilion is a lot like a winery. We really are blessed with a special park and a special setting for Sunset Fridays. The breeze from the lake cools you off, the entertainers are excellent, and the sunsets at the park can be fabulous! Enjoy a bite to eat from Gator Island Grill and sip your favorite beverage while you relax and unwind.
You still have time to check out Sunset Fridays this year. Two events are coming up: Serapis performs on Sept. 3 and Paul Bonn and The Bluesmen will close out the season on Sept. 10. Sunset Fridays concerts begin at 6:30 p.m., and Gator Island Grill serves food starting at 6 p.m.
But, the music won’t end there … after Sunset Fridays you can join us at 370 Lakeside Park again for Sunset Saturday on Sept. 18! This new, FREE event will be a lot like Sunset Fridays but with twice the music. Enjoy the sounds of Fabulous Motown Revue and Butch Wax and The Hollywoods! The concerts begin at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 18. Admission opens at 3 p.m. Gator Island Grill and food trucks will be on hand.
Learn more at www.stpetersmo.net/Sunset.
370 Lakeside Park doesn’t just entertain humans. The park has a fun place for Rover to socialize, too! The St. Peters Rotary Club Dog Park is a membership-only, fenced-in, off-leash dog park, just over two acres, located on the north end of 370 Lakeside Park. The park is split up into a SMALL DOG PARK (for dogs 24 lbs. and under) and a LARGE DOG PARK (25 lbs. and over). Learn more and download a membership application at www.stpetersmo.net/370Lakeside. When you apply for a dog park membership, keep in mind that you must have records of your dog being spayed/neutered and receiving Rabies shots. Plus, if you present a valid St. Peters Resident Privilege Card, you will receive a low resident rate. Join now and you and your doggie can take part in a fun Howl-a-Ween event in October!
One other thing I want to share this month: If you know someone in our community who does great deeds, is always helpful, goes the extra mile for friends and neighbors, or has made a difference in someone else’s life in some way, please consider nominating them for a Random Acts of Kindness Award. This program recognizes St. Peters residents, but you also can recognize owners of St. Peters businesses for their good deeds. Learn more and apply at www.stpetersmo.net/Kindness. We would love to recognize their special efforts … after all, it’s our residents who make My Hometown St. Peters such a great place to live!
