Vlasis Park is Ballwin's largest park. It is located North of Manchester Road between Seven Trails Dr., Ball Park Drive, and Holloway Road. The Ballwin Government Center, Public Works Department, and the Donald “Red” Loehr Police Building are located in Vlasis Park. Vlasis Park covers 31 acres and features a baseball diamond, a playground, four tennis courts, restrooms, two ponds (one of which is stocked with fish), two pavilions, a walking path, and a sand volleyball court.
Vlasis Park also hosts the "Ballwin Days" festival, one of the largest community events in the area. A volunteer committee that exceeds 100 members plans and carries out the activities each year that include live entertainment, sporting events, and game booths that attract more than 60,000 visitors to the three-day event.
New Ballwin Park
329 New Ballwin Road - Get Directions
New Ballwin Park is a seven-acre, neighborhood park that offers open space and active recreation opportunities such as two tennis courts, a multipurpose court with four basketball goals, a playground, a sand volleyball court, restrooms, a pavilion for picnicking, a walking path, and fishing close to home. A "Community Assistance Agreement" with the Missouri Department of Conservation has allowed the City to provide improved fishing amenities in Vlasis and New Ballwin Parks. The Conservation Department stocks the ponds monthly with Channel and Bullhead Catfish, Carp, and Trout at no cost to the City. The agreement has also provided the City with funding to construct a disabled user accessible cedar fishing deck and boardwalk at New Ballwin Park. In exchange for the stocking program and the funding for improvements, the City is obligated to maintain and make the ponds available to the public free of charge.
500 New Ballwin Road - Get Directions
The property now known as Ferris Park was given to the City by the State of Missouri, to be used solely for park and recreation purposes. It was developed at a cost of $350,000.00 and includes a soccer field, playground, comfort station, nature trails, and a pavilion with a very unique picnic opportunity. With financial assistance from the local Lions Club, city crews constructed the gothic arch pavilion on a cedar deck some 15 feet above the forest floor. A "Branch Out Missouri Grant" from the Missouri Department of Conservation has provided for the planting of 250 trees in the park. These same funds have been used to plant over 500 trees total in Ballwin parks over the past several years.
