I can't believe that we haven't spent more time at Creve Coeur Park. It has so much to offer!
Here are some of the highlights:
- 320-acre lake with a sand beach along north-east shore and "Dripping Springs" waterfall along south east shore
- boat and bike rentals
- 4 playgrounds
- paved walking and cycling trail
- picnic pavilions
- athletic fields
- Go Ape! Zip Lines
We started out by finding the cake, which was located by the entrance to Tremayne shelter near the boat ramp. You can practically drive right up to it.
This is the map I used.

We drove around and saw the four playground and the best one is located all the way at the end of Streetcar Drive (Location 2 on the map).
One of the best things about this playground is that it's really well shaded (at least it was when we went in the late afternoon). It also has playground equipment for little kids and big kids. And there is a sprayground although it was not working when we were there. There are some playgrounds that I feel like I can't safely take all 3 kids to by myself. This playground is totally manageable with all 3 kids.
