General Information / History
In June of 1978 St. Louis County purchased 120 acres of farmland from the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent DePaul. Two grants totaling more than one million dollars were received in 1978 and 1979 from the National Park Service for the purchase of the acreage and the initial park development. The property is now St. Vincent Park. 

The Community Center was opened in June 1989. There are supervised recreational programs, civic group meetings and organized basketball and day camps at the facility.

The Water Park was opened in August 1994. The Water Park has numerous water activities including a water slide and 80-foot flume ride. A food concession and lockers are available to the public.

The playground was redeveloped on the same site in 2000-2001.

A 1.36-acre parcel situated on the east side of Salerno Drive was acquired from the County Tax Assessor in 2003, completing the park’s circle around Castle Park Apartments and affording an opportunity to create a loop trail.
