The Parks Division's 108 parks serve as the anchor for city neighborhoods. They are gathering spots for neighbors to meet at playgrounds, summer concerts, picnics, ball games, tennis courts and lakes. Walkers and runners, bikers and bladers and dogs and their owners crowd the paths and sidewalks. And they can be a quiet oasis in the heart of the city.


The Recreation Division offers access to seven swimming pools and eight recreation centers and runs camps in summer, helps students with homework in winter and sponsors sports for youths all year long.


The Forestry Division is dedicated to improving the quality of life for all St. Louisans by enhancing and maintaing the surrounding environment. It plants the trees that make city streets come alive with colors in the spring and fall and provide shade in summer.
