Transformation in Progress: Youth Activity Park is Now Kinetic Park

The approval by the St. Charles County Council to change the name of Youth Activity Park to Kinetic Park leads the way for a major transformation that will be all about energy in motion through adventures and play. Construction began in spring 2021 at the park, and all elements of the transformation are expected to be complete by the end of 2022.

In addition to amenities already at the park, including the largest pump track in the United States, the largest outdoor skate park in Missouri, and a 30-foot indoor rock climbing wall, Kinetic Park will offer four new major areas: an indoor Activity Center, and Bike Playground and Skills, Splash Play, and Adventure Playground areas.
