Maryland Heights is home to Creve Coeur Park, one of the region's most popular parks, which is operated by St. Louis County. The park boasts a 320-acre lake as well as the picturesque "Dripping Springs" waterfall.
A popular summer resort in the early 1900s, the lake is now known for its paved walking and cycling trail, playground equipment, picnic pavilions, boating opportunities, athletic fields and much more.
