COVID-19 Dear St. Louis County residents, St. Louis County is a great place to live, work and raise a family. One of the highlights of the County is our dedicated green spaces. Our St. Louis County Parks and Recreation Department staff work hard year-round to keep our parks beautiful. As the days grow cooler, our parks burst with the colors of Fall and outdoor activities. Our dedicated park staff are diligently preparing a wide variety of programming to enhance your experience during the Fall and Winter. We will be following all public health guidelines. Program sizes have been limited and safety measures have been put in place.

Information Events and programs listed in this guide are subject to change based on updated recommendations and guidelines provided by the St. Louis County Department of Public Health. Programs may be heavily modified or canceled. The online Activity Guide will be updated periodically to reflect changes. For further information call (314) 615-4FUN or email PMailbox@stlouisco.com anytime Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

At Halloween, we will have the new Jack O ‘Lantern Trail and Trunk or Treat event at Faust Park, a Haunted Extravaganza in St. Vincent Park, and a Halloween Boo-Nanza at the North County Recreation Center. These events include pumpkin carving, haunted tours and candy for the kids.

Wear a face covering

Come Winter, St. Louis County parks will welcome visitors from throughout the region to Winter Wonderland at Tilles Park. Our staff work for weeks to assemble this display of hundreds of thousands of lights. We are again offering Winter Wonderland Walk dates this season. At these events, visitors can walk through the exhibit with children, leashed dogs, strollers and wagons.

Maintain social distancing

For senior residents, four of our recreation centers - The Pavilion at Lemay, the North County Recreation Complex, the AfftonRodgers Community Center and the St. Vincent Community Center - will again offer SilverSneakers and RenewActive. These programs provide free membership for swimming, walking and fitness classes for seniors who qualify through Medicare or group retiree health plans. Our staff will be happy to check to see if you qualify. We also offer ice skating (and skating lessons) at the Greensfelder and Kennedy recreation complexes. And please check this guide’s listings for schedules of nature programs, geocaching, trail rides, hikes and other activities.

Avoid crowds Stay home if you feel sick

I hope you will join my family as we enjoy the terrific attractions at our parks this Fall and Winter. Sincerely,

Sam Page St. Louis County Executive

Art Odili Donald Odita: From Periphery to Center

August 9, 2020 - December 20, 2020 Laumeier Sculpture Park

Nigerian-born, Philadelphia-based Odili Donald Odita is best known for his colorful, hard-edged, abstract paintings and public mural projects. Odita’s interwoven blocks of color are derived from a variety of influences; from outlandish Nigerian wallpaper in his native Enugu, to the old-school methods of Jazz music composition and traditional African artefacts. For Laumeier, his findings will inform the design of commissioned flags to be exhibited outdoors in the Park and off site at Jeske Sculpture Park in Ferguson, Missouri. Odita flag designs are extractions of his research on the ideas around the periphery and the center, most specifically looking at the geographic and social relationship between Ferguson, Missouri in North County and Laumeier Sculpture Park, located in Sunset Hills in South County.
