Ballwin is the best. The community comes together in times of loss, such as the instance of Officer Flamion nearly losing his life. In this particular instance small shops, local businesses, schools and government officials all came together to help and lift this family up. It was a reminder that although life can be hectic and busy at times, and we can feel disconnected, we are never really alone. The parks are amazing. The school districts are even better, but teachers should be paid more and compensated better for their patience, passion and unrelenting work. The support for local libraries and the fire department is amazing. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. Go Ballwin!

Great place to raise a family. Easily access restaurants, shopping, recreational activities, boutiques, awesome parks and more!
Ballwin provides beautiful parks and clean public spaces. Every day I enjoy walking from my house to Queeny Park, which has prairies, forests, lakes, a dog park, and beautiful people walking or running on the trails. I congratulate Ballwin on keeping Queeny Park clean and natural. It clears my head from worries and stress from school so I can go about my day joyfully.
