Having Creve Coeur lake close by makes it really nice in the summer to paddle board, bike, or walk around the lake. There are a lot of good restraunts in the area especially with Westport right next door. The new community center is outstanding and even includes and indoor pool with a zipline! The small aquatic park is right next door to the community center and has a variety of slides and pools for kids and adults.

When looking for a home, Maryland Heights was the ideal location based upon location in St.Louis County area, interstate access, and commercial businesses, BUT without hindering the solidarity of the family friendly neighborhoods. Now that I am here, all the standards has held true, especially when it comes to having a variety shopping options, family friendly activities/recreational facilities, and diverse school/population. Overall, I always recommend Maryland Heights to anyone looking to move. Whether they are singles or families!
I have really enjoyed living in Maryland Heights. The neighbors are friendly, caring, and genuinely helpful. There is a pride about living in Maryland Heights!
