Park programs throughout St. Charles County offer residents a bounty of activities, events, and programs. Several parks departments have just delivered their spring guides--and in some cases their spring and summer guides.
Even when the activities are sponsored by a particular city many of the camps, day trips, special events, and other indoor and outdoor activities are available to nonresidents to enjoy at only slightly higher fees than residents pay.
Often, the same magazine-style guides residents get are available online. If you're not a resident you can still learn about a neighboring city's activities, prices, and requirements.
O'Fallon recently delivered its Parks & Rec Guide for Spring 2013 to city residents.

Besides water park fun at Wapelhorst Park, and the dog swim for pets at McNair Park, and the Little Chef program at Memorial Hall, park-goers this year can enjoy food trucks on various dates at Frontier Park.
