St. Louis Area Parks: Wehner Park

Posted on: October 21, 2010

I don’t know if I’ve ever been to a more serene park than Wehner Park in Shrewsbury. Both times I have been there it has been so peaceful and quiet I just want to lie in the sun on a blanket reading a good book. But then I remember my two children and come back to reality. 🙂

Tucked away in Shrewsbury, Wehner Park has two playgrounds, tons of althetic fields, and a little something for just about anyone.

Here’s what you should know before you go:

  • Located along Hazel Avenue in Shrewsbury, with entrances off Lenox and the corner of Hazel/Wilshusen. Click here for a map.
  • Two playground areas: a slightly older structure in good condition near the Lenox entrance to the park (bottom row of pictures), and a somewhat newer playground area near the other entrance (top row of pictures)
  • Both playgrounds have mulch under foot
  • Both playgrounds have nice pavilions very close
  • Lenox entrance playground has a nice bathroom in the pavilion
  • Hazel/Wilshusen entrance playground has, amazingly, no bathroom nearby. The closest facility is the port-a-potty along the walking trail. (Whoever designed this was not a parent of young ones!)
  • Both playground areas are designed for school-age children, and the Hazel/Wilshusen playground also has swings and a structure for younger kids.
  • Tennis courts and athletic fields located near the Lenox entrance
  • Short paved walking/fitness path through the woods connecting the two playground areas
