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. No leashes are required inside the                                                           Bark Park area.  

All regulations are posted at the site.  All animal feces are to be picked up by the dog owners / handlers. Bags and trash cans are provided in the Bark Park.

Sand Volleyball Courts

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 come, first serve and cannot be reserved.

Basketball Hoops

If basketball is your sport, bring your ball and come down
to the tennis courts to shoot some hoops.   There are
four basketball hoops installed for a quick pick up game, or to
teach your kids how to play.  Each hoop is designed to
be lowered or made higher, depending on the age of the player.


Tennis Courts

Two tennis courts are available on a first come, first serve basis.  The tennis courts are located to the left when you pull into Legacy Park from Hwy N.


The playground is designed for 
children from 2 to 12 years of age.            
The Playground is located near the
amphitheater and Pavilion A in Legacy 
Park.  Let your children climb, swing,
slide and whirl on our many different
pieces.  Soft rubber flooring is in place to help with keeping your child safe.  Benches and awning-covered tables surround the playground for parents to be available while your child is playing. 

Liberty Swing

The Liberty Swing is a gift from the Cottleville     
Fireman's Outreach and is located at the playground in Legacy Park.  The swing is designed to be a safe place for those in a wheelchair, or other challenges, to enjoy.  If you want to utilize this piece of equipment,stop by the Police Department, City Hall, or the Fire Department to get the key to unlock the swing.

Old Log Cabin

The Cabin was originally owned by the
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.

Multi-Use Trail

This paved trail is used for walking,
running, bicycling, golf carts, roller blading, skateboarding or walking your pet.  A 5K run can easily be mapped out on our paved trails for your group or fundraiser.  Please be aware of those around you and be courteous users.

Koontz Fort Trail

This trail was completed in Spring 2015 and is a dry
weather trail through the woods and runs from Brittany Place subdivision to Legacy Park.  Take a walk and hear the quiet of the woods and watch the native animals in their habitat.

Vantage Lake is located in the Madison Park Subdivision and is accessible from Lohmar Lane via Madison Park Drive, or utilize the 10' paved pedestrian bridge over Dardenne Creek from the Legacy Park entrance.

Vantage Lake is a nine acre lake, 
houses a small gazebo, and offers 0.7 mile paved walking trail which connects to Warren Cottle Trail, Podhorn Memorial Trail, and Dardenne Greenway Trail.  The lake has been stocked with catfish and small mouth bass.  There is also a portable restroom located near the intersections of the Warren Cottle Trail and the Vantage Lake Trail.
Near Vantage Lake there is also Community Garden space available. We currently have some of the space occupied with vegetable gardeners, but does have room for additional gardeners to enjoy. Contact Rich Francis, City Administrator, to obtain community garden space. 


Multipurpose Sports Field

A new multipurpose field will be located behind Pavilion A with construction scheduled to be completed in the Fall of 2015.   This field will be used for football, soccer and many other sports.  The multi-sports field project will include a regulation size field, football/soccer goal posts, bleacher seating, recycle receptacles and some additional parking.
