Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park (also called Creve Coeur County Park) is a 2,145-acre (8.68 km2) St. Louis County park located in Maryland Heights, Missouri, United States. The park is the largest in the St. Louis County Parks system and includes Creve Coeur Lake, an oxbow lake which is one of the largest natural lakes in Missouri. The park has facilities for picnicking, tennis courts, multi-purpose athletic fields, and an archery course. Creve Coeur Park includes Crystal Springs Quarry Golf Course, an 18-hole course opened in 2001. In December 2003, construction for the Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park Bridge, which is part of Missouri Route 364, was completed. The concrete bridge connects St. Louis County to St. Charles County and crosses over the southern end of the park. The project also included Creve Coeur Lake being dredged and the addition of a siltation lake to prevent the need for later dredging. Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park has an asphalt walking trail around the lake, which was constructed by the Missouri Department of Transportation alongside the bridge project. The trail also connects to a separate lane on the bridge leading across the Missouri River to connect to the Katy Trail. A large portion of the park and surrounding area is also wetlands, and the park has been used for conservation purposes, particularly the study of various waterfowl.

  • A fun place to be in the summer; sail boat cove and kayak rentals. I love spending an hour or so on the lake in one of the rented kayaks in the summer time.

  • This is one of Saint Louis County's finest parks. The rowing club is incredible to watch or participate in. Go Ape is just great fun and the walking, biking, canoeing and jogging trails are better.....  more

  • Creve Coeur lake is a wonderful park. It truly is a hidden gem right in my backyard. At times I forget that it is only a few minutes drive from my home. When my mother passed away last year I went to the park and took in the sights and sounds of the lake. I was at peace.
  • Easy access in and out. Well placed directional signs, never felt like I didn't know where something was or how to get there. Came for the St Louis Triathlon.
