About the Park
Rich in St. Charles County history, this 109-acre park features a reconstructed 1800s historical homestead and features paved and natural surface trails, a large fishing pond, picnic areas, a forest-themed playground and a series of interlinked scenic rain gardens for the public to enjoy. Experience history, nature and education all coming together at Towne Park, including the only Certified Nature Explore classroom in St. Charles County.
Donated by the late Mrs. Betty Towne, the property was to be preserved and turned into a public park. For its efforts to restore the homestead, the Parks Department was recognized at the Missouri State Capital in Jefferson City by receiving the 2007 McReynolds Award from the Missouri Alliance for Historic Preservation.
