Valley Park is a wonderful town, I have grown up here all my life and could not have been more thankful. I feel it is a very comfortable place, full of opportunity for anybody. Everything is very conveniently placed, the people are wonderful and polite, the school system is amazing, and there are many large improvements the city makes every day.

This is a nice neighborhood of St. Louis for the working adult. I moved here after living in the city's North County for about two years and I must say its a big difference. There is a loss of diversity though as it seams most residents are middle class Caucasians. There is a general safe feeling of being able to walk/run, even at night as there isn't too much pedestrian traffic. The shopping centers are fair and the rentals are reasonable.
I really like how all the schools are close to each other in Valley Park. You send your elementary, middle and high school students all to the same place. The school is small but that just means everyone is more friendly and teachers have one on one time with you if needed. Valley Park is a great community always coming together when disasters happen like the flood of 2015-16.
