The last major Park to be developed in the City of St. Louis. 70 acres of Willmore Park was donated by Cyrus Crane Willmore.
Mr. Willmore was a prominent St. Louis developer, responsible for many suburban sub-divisions in University City, Webster Groves and Normandy. His main St. Louis contributions were Kingshighway Hills (now in the North Hampton neighborhood) and St. Louis Hills.
There are a lot of things that make this park active including a disc golf course, pet friendly walking path (including bags to curb the dogs), a dog park, multiple covered pavilions for picnics, tennis courts, fishing lakes, roller hockey rink, multiple softball fields and a massive new playground. Pets will love the chance to exercise off-leash while you enjoy the peaceful setting of this lovely fenced dog park. Dog park requires annual dues and membership, but open to any one with proof of shots and agreement to adhere to dog park rules. www.swcitydogpark.org
The North Lake is a hot spot for local fishermen where the bass are reportedly in good numbers.
