Ballwin has many programs and parks for family enrichment, often these are free to the public. The Parkway school system is excellent with many extracurricular activities to enhance everyone's different interests. Shopping is nearby, housing is fantastic and plenty of good restaurants to choose from when you want a break from cooking. From shopping to eating to activities there is a range from economical to upscale choices.
Ballwin is a beautiful community with great parks, fun places to shop and great schools. Minutes from local highways to get you to a Cardinals Game or when the Blues are in town! Andy's Frozen Custard is a great place to stop year round.
