County Acquires Property for Future Park in Wentzville

Park Land Purchase

St. Charles County has purchased land near Wentzville that will bring the number of County parks to 21. The property is 199 acres.

“Wentzville is a growing, rapidly changing area,” says St. Charles County Executive Steve Ehlmann, “and this beautiful park property gives us an opportunity to maintain green space for the future. The Parks Department has other properties in reserve for that very reason. Our mission is to preserve and conserve the natural and historic resources of this county for the recreational benefit and enjoyment of our citizens.”

The St. Charles County Parks Department currently has 17 parks open to the public, four in reserve, and a total of 4,151 acres. More information on plans for this park and an opening date will be forthcoming. All acquisitions, development and operations of County parks are funded from a local use tax on out-of-state purchases approved by voters in 1997 for the exclusive use of parks.
