Reber Park, Winchester

Location: 109 Lindy Blvd, Ballwin, MO 63021

Amenities: picnic shelter, restroom, playground, tennis court, ballfields, horseshoe pits,


Playground ground cover: wood chips

Reber Park is located in the center of Winchester, MO, a very small municipality located in west county, just west of Manchester, MO, near the corner of Manchester road and Sulpher Springs. There are 3 playgrounds at the park, the first two are near the off-street parking lot.

The toddler playground has a couple straight, small slides and some places to climb. There is also an activity wall which has a steering wheel and tic-tac-toe among other activities. It is located near the parking lot, next to the school-aged playground.

The school-aged playground has a small slide and 3 adjacent larger slides. Also there is a zip line with handle, several climbing areas, a separate spinning and bouncing device (for one or 2 children each), a free-standing jungle gym, and 4 sling swings.

According to a mother I talked to in the park, the park gets overrun by middle-school children sometimes in the afternoons, which are not the best playmates for toddlers - just keep that in mind when you choose what time to visit the park. I did not witness any problems when I was at the park though.

At the far end of the park is a third playground (from the parking lot, cross the ball fields to reach this playground). This playground has a toddler/preschool play structure, a bouncy teeter-totter sized for young children, 2 baby swings, and 2 sling swings.
