Bluff View Park

Bluff View Park Now Open

Bluff View Park is now open! As of, Friday, August 7, 2015, at 9:00 a.m., Bluff View Park is open to public use. This park is over one hundred (100) acres in size, and located on Old State Road, east of State Route 109. This park property is owned by St. Louis County and leased to the City of Wildwood for development. The property extends from Old Sate Road, south to the Meramec River, and provides one of the most spectacular views in the region of the Crescent Valley. The City and St. Louis County developed a parking lot and roadway area to provide access to an existing trail system that has been available for use since 2014. This trail is a natural-surface type that offers scenic views, challenging and sometimes strenuous climbs, but a fun and enjoyable outdoor experience for nature lovers. A different component of this park is that it has been designed for equestrian users as well as walkers, runners, bicyclists, and nature lovers.

August Wildwood Historical Society Program

The August program of the Wildwood Historical Society (WHS) will feature a history of the Wabash, Frisco, & Pacific (WF&P) Railroad Association, Inc.

Since 1961, the association has continued its fine tradition of providing locomotive rides for children and families in the Historic Village of Glencoe, within the City of Wildwood. If you would like to learn more about this railroad and its history, please come to the program on August 18!

Wildwood is Almost 20 – Part III

Many in the Wildwood community may not be aware of the significant interest that exists among many of our residents in the arts.  This interest led to a group of them forming a committee to promote art and artists in Wildwood.  The outcome of its efforts is now the 2nd Annual Celebrate Wildwood Art Festival.  This year, 60 artists are participating and will bring their unique talents right to your doorstep.  The Art Festival opens on August 29, 2015, and concludes the next day, August 30, 2015.  Please come out and support these artists and their efforts at this event.
