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!

The Nice and safe area to live! with so many different types of activities and infrastructure. They have so many nice entertainments, like summer concerts, golf course, aquatic centers, etc. There are a huge variety of stores, multicultural eateries, auto dealerships, mechanic shops, etc. In recent years Ballwin has quickly expanded the diversity of businesses and remains a stable environment for local businesses. Recreational centers, parks, and camps help to discover, explore, and keep unforgettable experience, explore talents, interests, and safe values and spirit of the diverse community.
Thank you, the city of Ballwin and to all people who make and keep your character and uniqueness!!!!!
Friendly, great nature, clean, peaceful. Great area to live in, high security. Commuting by cars is unnecessary because pedestrian path is being offered throughout the area. Countless of annually events that keep people interact in the area.
