St. Louis Area Parks – Watson Trails Park

Posted on: August 28, 2010

For our “Family Adventure” this week, we headed over to Watson Trails Park in Sunset Hills. We had been there before, with and without kids, but had never really taken the time to explore it as a family. And it is definitely worth exploring! Here are some important tidbits to know before you visit Watson Trails Park:

  • Two playgrounds – one larger and newer up near the parking lot and the second older and smaller down by the lake area
  • Smaller playground gets some shade; larger playground is in the sun
  • Playground “floor” a combination of mulch and soft tile surface
  • Many trails paved, but very steep
  • Stroller accessible, but limited wheelchair access
  • Restroom facilities located near the parking lot and picnic shelters
  • Tennis courts, available by reservation
  • 9 hole disc golf course, mainly in wooded areas
  • Basketball court
  • Sand volleyball court
  • Community Pool, for a fee, during the summer months
  • Group campfire area
  • Small lake, with fishing available (lake is stocked), donation requested
