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.
Review Ballwin
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.
Ballwin is a area where you can find friends in seconds. A place where safety is the first thing. People are friendly and treat each other with respect. Everyone is welcome. A place where you’ll find caring peoples. The school which I go to is really open to anyone. A place where I can get my education from is a best place where I will be able one day become a dentist. My dream is to become a dentist, and Ballwin area its near colleges are helping me to get there. With their help, one day I will become a dentist.
