Fenton City Park

Fenton is known as the “City of Parks” with good reason. Its public parks are some of the most renowned in the country! Fenton City Park in par(k)ticular is home to the Heroes Memorial, which features a floating granite globe your kids can spin with their own hands, a 9/11 Memorial, and flagpoles sponsored by local organizations. Pay your respects at this beautiful remembrance of those who were lost in the line of duty. 

Fabick Nature Reserve

Two lakes draw large crowds to Fabick Nature Reserve, a Fenton park where public fishing has been made possible through cooperation between the local Fenton government and the Missouri Conservation Department in cooperation with the latter’s rules and regulations. Bring a pole, a tackle box, and your friends or family for a relaxing day casting lines on either shore, and bring home a dinner you’ll be proud to have caught yourself!

Riverchase of Fenton Recreation Center

The Meramec River Greenway overlooks the Meramec River, and is reached by taking a walking and biking path from Fenton City Park to the Highway 30 overpass. With a boardwalk constructed entirely from recycled materials, along with a playground, restrooms, and plenty of outdoor splendor, you and your family are sure to find plenty of interesting stops along the way before settling in one of its many shelters for a picnic lunch.

Bud Weil Park

Originally purchased by a Croatian stonemason in 1929, this 22-acre park was named after Bud Weil – Fenton’s first full-time fire marshal and later fire chief. Visitors come to Bud Weil Park not only to walk its short, picturesque trail, but to learn more about Fenton’s most-notable residents, and take advantage of its Hexagon shelter, and stone Domijan shelter for parties and other gatherings.
