Veterans Tribute Park is the only County park of its kind surrounded by residential development in a suburban setting. There is something for everyone! The park officially opened on Oct. 20, 2018.
A destination playground for children of all abilities encompasses social/emotional, physical, sensory, cognitive, and communication development. The playground is divided into zones: interactive and motion-activated water play; music play; adventure play with climbing features; inclusive swings; and a hillside slide.
A walking and biking trail system spans 1.6 miles, wrapping through and around the park.
Two lakes are stocked for catch-and-release fishing. Fishing is regulated by Missouri state laws.
Three non-reservable, open-play fields totaling 6 acres make perfect locations for pick-up games and activities.
A 3-acre off-leash dog park is divided into small and large dog areas.
A raised boardwalk extends from the historic 1916 silo on the property and past the playground to allow beautiful views of the lakes through a canopy of trees.
The signature lakeside Sammelmann Shelter accommodates more than 100 guests, and two additional shelters accommodate 100 guests each.
Veterans Memorial - COMING SOON
Plans are in development for a Veterans Memorial with a plaza, benches and memorial wall with water feature.
