Vance Trail Park, Valley Park

Location: 1338 Hanna Road, Valley Park, MO 63088

Amenities: playground, picnic tables, trail

Website: http://www.valleyparkmo.org/vance-trail-park/

Playground ground cover: pea gravel

The real gem of Vance Trails Park is the creek which runs right past the parking lot. Older kids will love catching tadpoles and wading. The path over the creak has no railings (see picture below), so you will have to watch young children very carefully (my toddler kept trying to walk up to the very edge and look down in the water). The playground has a couple slides and swings, but was overgrown with weeds and had branches hanging over the play area as well. There is a bit of shade over the playground.
