Our Mission is to enhance community unity, health and open space preservation through people, parks and programs.
The City of Wentzville Parks and Recreation Department provides many opportunities for people of all ages. Programs offered include fitness, sports leagues, cultural arts and enrichment classes. In addition, the Department offers special events throughout the year including the Hill of Thrills Soapbox Race, Easter EGGstravaganza, Holiday Night Lights and many others. We strive to offer something for everyone in the community.
The Parks and Recreation Department prides itself in keeping each park safe and beautiful for everyone to enjoy. Parks in the community feature playgrounds, pavilions, paved trails, ball fields, a fishing lake, swimming pools and many other outdoor amenities. We currently have 9 parks within our Department. Progress Park houses the administrative offices, gymnasium, fitness center and Progress Park Center. The Center is a banquet hall facility which can be rented to host wedding receptions, birthday parties or other indoor festivities.
The Parks and Recreation brochure, Fun Times, is published three times each year. All residents receive the brochure by mail; you can also stop by the Parks and Recreation office to pick up a copy. For a PDF version of Fun Times, please visit our website.
