St. Cin Park, Hazelwood

Location: Alma Dr at Fox Tree Dr, Hazelwood MO 63142


Playground Ground Cover: Wood Chips

Amenities include: Athletic fields, accessible comfort station, horseshoes, multi-use court, accessible picnic pavilion, picnic site, playground, 1/3 mile walking/jogging path, volleyball

This 10 acre park is very close to Aubuchon Park.  It has a nice playground and the restrooms and covered pavilion are right there, so I consider this a great playground. There are 2 play structures, and the small one has a bridge, some slides, a pretend window, and a small rock wall.

Basketball Court

The larger play structure has a bridge, slides, tons of bars and poles, monkey bars, and a bouncing bench. There is a big rock wall nearby but there are no swings.

Restrooms and pavilion

Alligator's Creek Aquatic Center, O'Fallon MO

Location: 403 Civic Park Drive, O'Fallon, MO 63366


This is a pubic pool and their prices are very reasonable.  The daily rate for resident kids is $4, non resident is $6. The daily rate for resident seniors is $4, non resident is $6. And the daily rate for resident adults is $5 and non residents is $7. Not bad prices at all!

Here's an overhead shot. They have a one-meter spring diving board in the deep pool, a lazy river with a vortex that's connected to the children's shallow pool, a small splash pad, and kids who are at least 48 inches tall can enjoy three water slides.

Civic Park, O'Fallon MO

Location: 308 Civic Park Dr, O'Fallon, MO 63366


Playground Ground Cover: Poured Rubber

Amenities: For fun and relaxation all year long, 20-acre Civic Park offers a variety of amenities: a picnic pavilion, a bandstand, two horseshoe pits, and two playgrounds. The newest playground is ADA accessible, with an ADA-compliant walking path connecting the playground to the parking lot. The O’Fallon Historical Society Log Cabin Museum is open for tours by appointment and during special events. The O'Fallon Aquatic Center (Alligator's Creek) is also located in this park.

The website says they have 2 playgrounds, but one was just cleared. The land was being leveled today. Not sure if they're rebuilding a new playground or using it for something else. There is a restroom building nearby and there are also port a potties.

There is one play structure and it has several slides, a cool rock wall that you can walk over, pretend areas, ramps, bridges, a steering wheel, and tons of bars and poles.

 Very large covered pavilion

 You can cross this narrow "mountain" which my daughter did one time and said it was REALLY hot.
