The 2 playgrounds are circled in red, and the pool is directly south of the eastern one. The eastern playground in the park is on pea gravel, which sucks, but it's a great play structure. It's also close to restrooms and a large pavilion. The play structure has several different slides, a bridge, and tons of bars and poles.

Mary Ridge Park, St. Ann

Location: Bounded by Eastridge and Westridge Lns, St. Ann MO 63074


Playground Ground Cover: Wood Chips

This park is 3 acres, and has 1 ball diamond, 1 BBQ Grill, 1 comfort station, 1 horseshoe pit, 1 pavilion, and a nice playground.

I was impressed with almost all of St. Ann's playgrounds. They may not be the latest and greatest equipment, but they're large and there's a ton of things to do on them. Most of the playgrounds could use more wood chips, but besides that they're in good condition.  This park is quiet and peaceful and would be a good place for a gathering.

Restrooms, pavilion, and BBQ pit are all close and in good shape.

There are 3 sling swings and 2 baby swings.

The playground is down the hill.

It's just one huge structure. It has a bouncy step, monkey bars, climbing panels, multiple different slides, bridge, tunnels, pretend storefront, and lots of bars and poles.
