Text size: A A

The City of Wildwood, Mo., has contracted Oates Associates and the planning team of Nelson Byrd Woltz and Vector Communications to prepare a conceptual plan for a future world-class park to support this recreational community near St. Louis.

The park would be located on a 66-acre tract of land that the city owns at Highways 100 and 109 near the Wildwood Town Center.

The land features gently rolling hills, grasslands, native woodlands and a creek.

“Our goal is to create a diverse set of memorable spaces that embody Wildwood’s character while protecting the unique topography of the land,” says Bill Burke, senior planner of Oates Associates. “The park will balance the site’s natural amenities with the everyday social and recreational needs of Wildwood residents.”

The planning program will begin with a public engagement process to obtain input from residents.

The layout for park facilities and recreational areas will be based on the needs of the citizens, the surrounding development pattern and the physical characteristics of the land.
