City Parks

The city maintains 11 parks with 106 acres, which feature ball fields, play systems, picnic pavilions, volleyball courts, tennis courts, archery range, multiuse trails, open-park land, and other amenities detailed below. Pavilions may be reserved by residents for social functions by contacting the Parks and Recreation Department at 314-521-4661.

The city parks are maintained by the Park Maintenance Division of Ferguson's Public Works Department with coordination from the Parks and Recreation Department.

Picnic Tables & Pavilions


Picnic tables are available to use in Ferguson parks on a first-come, first-served basis. Pavilions located at January-Wabash, Forestwood, and Hudson Parks may be reserved by Ferguson residents for $50 except for the Bandshell which may be reserved for $100.  There is also a $50 security deposit for each rental.  Security Deposits will be processed within 2-4 weeks after rental if pavilion is found to be in satisfactory condition with no damage assessed.

The pavilions have up to six picnic tables and can accommodate a maximum of 60 people. Due to the popularity of pavilion permits, reservations need to be made well in advance and no later than two weeks prior to the picnic. Print out the facility use request and bring to the Parks and Recreation Office with valid identification and payment. Reservations for the calendar year begin the first day open in January each year.

Pavilion rental does not include use of the Splash at Wabash Aquatic Facility; entry during the weekends at the Splash is for Ferguson residents only.

For larger rentals or organization use please contact the Ferguson Recreation Department for more information.
