Stacy Park is a wonderful neighborhood park. Kids love the fun playground equipment (my daughter particularly likes the mini "rock climbing" wall). For parents, the park has lots of shade trees, benches and porch-style swings that make perfect spots for reading while the kids play, as well as trails for walking or running. Another great thing about Stacy Park is the atmosphere. Despite its location in generally homogeneous Olivette, the park attracts surprisingly diverse visitors. I've met parents from all over the world at Stacy Park, and am always struck by how friendly everyone is. In the summer, don't miss the Stacy Park carnival, which the park hosts during one weekend in July (at least I think its the July-check the schedule for the exact weekend). If your kids enjoy rides, games and funnel cake (and what kid doesn't?), you won't want to miss the carnival.
