Quail Ridge Park, located near Peruque Creek on 250 acres of undulating meadows, forested slopes, and rich bottomland, is a haven for wildlife. Quail Ridge Park is a public park in the city of Wentzville, Missouri, United States. The St. Charles County Parks Department is in charge of running the facility. Henry L. Stealey, a farmer, gave half of the park’s property and sold the other half to St. Charles County in 1998, resulting in the creation of the park. The American Society of Landscape Architects’ St. Louis branch generously contributed their time and expertise to the project’s development. The park first opened its doors in 2000. There is a three-acre fishing lake on the property, as well as seven miles of trails and concrete areas.
Quail Ridge Park is home to more than 7 miles of natural surface and paved paths that meander across the park’s landscape. A variety of facilities are available in the park, including an outdoor swimming pool, wading pool, children’s play area, picnic gazebo, and jogging path. The 2.5-acre Off-Leash Dog Area is also a well-known destination for many pet lovers who come to have a good time with their dogs.
Quail Ridge Park is a popular site for visitors because of its 18-hole disc golf course and the fact that it is the home of the National Horseshoe Pitchers Hall of Fame.
For a corporate picnic or family reunion, a big group picnic space in the park is the ideal location to hold the event. The 3-acre lake and tiny fishing pond, which are stocked with bluegill, bass, and catfish, are a popular destination for many fishermen all year long, especially during the summer. Local brides have named it the “Best Wedding Destination” and the cedar banquet hall and gazebo in the park have become favorite locations for many couples to exchange wedding vows.
