Des Peres Park, Des Peres

Location: 12325 Manchester Rd., Des Peres, MO 63131

Amenities: playgrounds, trail, lake, basketball, tennis courts, restrooms, sprayground


Playground ground cover: Poured rubber

Des Peres Park has 2 very nice playgrounds, located near each other. One is designed for younger children, and the other is more for older children, nice for parents of toddlers, as the older kids are on a completely separate play area. There are 2 regular swings and 2 baby swings next to the toddler/preschool playground. The larger playground has several slides, a climbing wall and a sprayground (seasonal). The smaller playground has areas for imaginative play as well, including a castle. The button to turn on the sprayground is by the restrooms - there is no sign to direct you to the button. There's also a great little trail that goes around a lake, with a wooden boardwalk. There are usually ducks and geese to watch in the lake.
