Legacy Park

                                                            Playground at Legacy Park
              Named by the City Council in hopes that the "Legacy" of growing for tomorrow will always
                                                       continue for the City of Cottleville. 

Legacy Park is our most utilized park and a great place for the family.   Legacy Park is located on Hwy N, nestled up to Dardenne Creek near City Hall.  The park is also accessible from Vantage Park via the 10' wide pedestrian bridge over Dardenne Creek. 

Legacy Park currently features two pavilions, a playground, tennis courts, basketball hoops, sand volleyball courts, an amphitheater, the Bark Park and a multi-use trail.  Watch for the multipurpose sports field to be installed the Fall of 2015. 

Bark Park

Bring your furry friend down to socialize  with other dogs.   Two sections are available to enjoy.   A smaller section for small dogs or puppies, and a large one-acre section for large dogs to run, chase and play.  The Bark Park will be closed when muddy conditions prohibit access.

        Two Florida sand volleyball courts are available and open to free play any day or
        night of the week EXCEPT when the Cottleville League is playing.   These are first

Old Log Cabin

        Sargent Family and was located on Eagle
        Hill, just north of old town Cottleville.
        The City purchased the cabin and had it
        transported to its current location.  The
        Old Cabin has a "self-composting"
        restroom.   The Cabin is at the Trailhead
        for the Dardenne Greenway.  

Rotary Amphitheater
        This amphitheater was made possible by the Cottleville/Weldon Spring Rotary Club and
        many other businesses, clubs, foundations and residents.   It is a work in progress, and
        the master plan is to have the concrete pad for the stage in soon.  Once the concrete
        pad is completed, the City will be utilizing this beautiful space for many types of events. 
        Events to be held at the amphitheater include plays, music festivals, movie nights and
        concerts.  It is currently home to the Annual Great Easter Egg Hunt and has been for
        several years.
