Family Trails



The St. Louis County Parks Foundation has developed an innovative “Family Trail” concept. The Family Trail includes adult exercise equipment with educational play stations for children and youth. It is designed to promote inter-generational activity. The inviting design encourages outdoor exercise and active play that the entire family can enjoy at the same time. Pockets along a paved trail include educational and nature themed play areas, adult exercise equipment, benches and landscaping. Children can lead their adult and other playmates from pocket to pocket to keep the entire family moving.

The first Family Trail was dedicated in 2018 at Spanish Lake Park. More Family Trails are planned at Jefferson Barracks Park and Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park.
