Frontier Park is a Happening Place in Old Town St. Charles

Frontier Park is a neat place to visit once when visiting St. Louis Missouri and the surrounding areas. The thing that took us there first was the neat historic downtown area that offers shopping and many neat restaurants. There are bricks along the streets, and incredible little old houses with lots of charm. That alone is worth seeing.


Frontier Park is a very short walk, maybe five minutes away from this fun Main Street area. While there, one can go visit the courthouse, a neat brewery, bed and breakfast or two, and much much more. I have even seen some neat archeaological digs going on around the certain homesteads. It is pretty amazing!

Not only that, but there is an old Train Station in the park, as well as Katy Trail going through this area that is quite popular for those that love to bike, run, walk, etc. It is a really neat way to see Missouri.

I have seen incredible quilt shows put on in this park, and my own mother has had some quilts shown in those shows. They used the Train Station in Frontier Park for this one year, it was simply incredible!

If you are into history or craft shows, this park and the surrounding area is often used for different fairs and shows, reenactments, etc. It draws many people from the surrounding areas.

There is a neat raised and covered area that I don't have a photo of here, but that is great for if it is raining, or for a band to play. It is actually very nice. This part of Frontier park and river right behind it, can be seen from the top porch seating for the Popular Lewis and Clark Restaurant that is about a block over, on Main Street.

I have spent some time in this neat park over the years, when I have been visiting there with friends or family from out of town, or to celebrate a birthday, etc. It is a place that I have sought out when my boys were with me as well. I recall taking my Aunt Donna or Brother Scott and his family, as we love to go and look for rocks by the river. It is just neat to see what is down there. Often times this was around the Thanksgiving weekend, and so was a little chilly, but still nice enough to be out in it if you had something to bundle up in should it be cooler.

Here in this hub, I share a few photos that commemorate Lewis and Clark, such an important part of this areas history. Hopefully you can read some of the excerpts from the one picture, of some things written in their journal!

This, like so many other places, is a gem in itself for making sure that those that come can learn easily enough of the history that is such an important part of our country in the United States, and our heritage as a nation. All those little stories together tell quite a big and interesting story!

Should you ever be in the area where you want to go and see the St. Louis Arch and surrounding area, and have some time, this is a neat place to see as well. I can recall going to the Lewis and Clark restaurant with some people from out of town, then strolling through this park a bit, then heading over to the St. Louis Arch after that. It is definitely something that can be fit in!

      Hello Matt, so glad to hear that! If you like seeing places that seem out of a bygone era, make sure to see Main Street also while there, you have to pretty much pass it to see the park anyway. They have many lovely places to have lunch or a coffee, etc. Happy Travels to you, and thank you for the comment!
