The property now known as Ferris Park was given to the City by the State of Missouri, to be used solely for park and recreation purposes. It was developed at a cost of $350,000.00 and includes a soccer field, playground, comfort station, nature trails, and a pavilion with a very unique picnic opportunity. With financial assistance from the local Lions Club, city crews constructed the gothic arch pavilion on a cedar deck some 15 feet above the forest floor. A "Branch Out Missouri Grant" from the Missouri Department of Conservation has provided for the planting of 250 trees in the park. These same funds have been used to plant over 500 trees total in Ballwin parks over the past several years.
The Parks and Recreation Department takes reservations for pavilions beginning the first working day of the year. Reservations must be made in person at The Pointe. Proof of residency is required to receive the Ballwin Resident Rate.
The pavilion extends into a beautiful wooded area and seats 60. It is located immediately adjacent to a playground, restrooms, and parking with a grill near by.
Seating Available - 60
Resident Rate - $30.00
Non-Resident Rate - $50.00
Park pavilions are available for rentals from April-October of every year. Park pavilion rentals may be made starting January 2 at The Pointe.
