St. Louis Family Church Playground, Chesterfield

Location: 17458 Chesterfield Airport Rd., Chesterfield, MO 63005


Playground Ground Cover: Wood chips

This playground is on private property, but they encourage the community to use it. They have a sign posted that they welcome guests and every time I drive by it's empty. The address says Chesterfield Airport Road but the playground is in the back and is actually closer to Edison. This part of the Valley is loaded with fun venues including Dream Play, Upper Limits, Hi-NRG, Chesterfield Sports Fusion, Sky Zone, BounceU, Cheer Legendz, and Little Fishes.

The playground isn't anything amazing, but it's colorful and has some fun activities. The smaller playstructure has some slides, a small bridge, a tic tac toe board, and some bars and poles. The larger playstructure has slides, bubble window, maze board, a bridge, some spinning bars, and lots of bars and poles. There is also a modified teeter totter and a stand alone rock wall. There are no restrooms here but there are picnic tables and benches scattered around.

The Putting Edge is an indoor glow in the dark mini golf place and is located next to the Regal Theater at the Mills mall. It's only open on weekends and their hours are Friday 4-9, Saturday 12-9, and Sunday 12-6. They charge $11.50 per person for ages 9 and up, and $9.50 per person for kids 8 and under.

The 18-hole mini-golf course has themes including the ocean, jungle & outer space. They don't serve hot food but they do sell snacks. They host birthday parties also.

They have some random arcade games

Not sure how much longer this place will be here, the Mills is basically a dead mall. 

New Town Chapel Playground, St. Charles

Location: 3420 Civic Circle, St. Charles, MO 63301


This is the cutest playground! It's enclosed with a fence and gate and is rather small, and would be perfect for toddlers.  There is one wooden painted play structure featuring a rope climber, a rock wall, 2 slides, a rope bridge, and a free standing little house. It's in the New Town community next to the chapel.

There is no bathroom here but the church is next door and there are lots of businesses on this street in New Town. I have no idea what the actual name of this playground is, because the New Town website doesn't say and I can't find info on line about it. All in all it's a very cute playground!
