Indian Camp Creek Park, Foristell

Location: 2679 Dietrich Rd, Foristell, MO 63348


Playground Ground Cover: Wood Chips, grass

Amenities: Camping area, playground, creek, disc golf, fishing (bluegill, bass, and catfish), and multi-use trails.

This park is wonderful for kids of all ages to explore. The main playground is huge! And right off the playground is a path that leads straight down to a creek. I wish we had brought nets and things because you could see little minnows swimming in the water.

The following pictures are of the second play area. It features a play structure next to the pavilion area. But the main attraction here is the man made creek bed. There are huge frog sculptures to play on, a water sprayer, and shallow water filled with rocks and dirt and sticks. I just read an article that talked about how kids actually prefer organic play over structured play equipment. The found that outdoor play spaces that contain materials that children could manipulate — sand, water, mud, plants, pathways and other loose parts — offered more developmental and play opportunities than spaces without these elements. Kids should have a blast here then!

This is the first playground near the entrance It's a huge wooden structure featuring rock walls, slides, steering wheels, tunnels, and lots of other things. There is also a tire swing, a teeter-totter, 2 sling swings, and 2 baby swings.

These steps lead up to the bathrooms. The path to the creek is right by the pavilion.

If you look at the map, it says there are actually 4 play areas, and we only explored 2, so I think we will need to go back!
