Youth Activity Park


About the Park


The 25-acre Youth Activity Park (YAP) is taking "extreme" sports to the next level with its state-of-the-art 33,000-square foot skate course! This course is equipped with nighttime lighting and has beginner, intermediate and advanced bowls, street course, and snake run scattered with ramps, gaps, hubbas and much more!

The course is open year around to users of all ages, skateboards, inline skates, scooters, and BMX bikes can ride throughout the concrete facility that offers challenges for every skill level. Helmets are required for all extreme sports enthusiasts using the skate course. Designed to provide a safe place for area youth to enjoy an assortment of alternative recreational opportunities, it’s also the largest outdoor skate park in the state of Missouri.  

In addition to the skate course, the facility also features a 30-foot indoor rock climbing wall, a sand volleyball court, half-court basketball, an open play area, table tennis, foosball table, air hockey and large video gaming area equipped with 2 flat screen televisions. The YAP Café is available for visitors to purchase a variety of snacks including pizza, frozen grapes, pretzels with cheese, mac n’ cheese cups, fried mozzarella sticks, chicken strips, fountain soda, Dippin Dots and ice cream and more! And the Youth Activity Park Indoor Recreation Room and Meeting Room are available to rent for up to 20 guests. Birthday party and group event packages also are available.

COMING SOON! Construction on the largest asphalt pump track in the country is well underway at St. Charles County’s Youth Activity Park (YAP) in Dardenne Prairie. At an amazing 30,000-square feet, this monstrous track will stand above the rest with beginner, intermediate and advanced sections. The new facility is located next to the largest outdoor skate/bike course in Missouri already established in the park. The new track will consist of a circuit of paved rollers, banked turns and features designed to be ridden by riders “pumping"—generating momentum by up and down body movements—instead of pedaling or pushing. When construction is complete in 2020, the pump track will be open year-round, accommodate riders of all abilities, and provide the challenges necessary to host local and national bike competitions in the park. For more information, call the park at 636-561-4964 or follow us on Facebook for frequent construction updates.
