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.
The North Lake is a hot spot for local fishermen where the bass are reportedly in good numbers.
