The community center also features state-of-the-art fitness equipment, a suspended indoor track and a two-court gymnasium. Along with the city’s state-of-the-art library, multi-purpose meeting rooms and the green space that surrounds the facility, the community center is the perfect gathering place for receptions, seminars, family reunions and other events.

Situated just a block away on the northeast corner of Dale Avenue and Laclede Station Road, the A. B. Green Athletic Complex is equipped with softball diamonds, a playground, a soccer field and lighted basketball and tennis courts. Additionally, the complex has a picnic area with barbecue grills for family and friendly gatherings.

Tucked away in one of Richmond Height’s older neighborhoods, Highland Park is a small landscaped retreat with playground equipment and a gazebo for picnics. Through an innovative arrangement that stems from the three-city study agreement shared by Richmond Heights, Maplewood and Clayton, Richmond Heights residents have access to the parks in Maplewood and are afforded the opportunity to utilize Maplewood’s outdoor aquatic center at Maplewood resident rates during the summertime. In return, Maplewood residents can take advantage of Richmond Heights’ recreation and park facilities under similar terms. Richmond Heights has other, more limited arrangements for various facilities and programs with the neighboring cities of Brentwood and Clayton as well.

Historic Forest Park, located just minutes away from the city, is the site of the 1904 World’s Fair. Overseen by the City of St. Louis, Forest Park offers an assortment of outdoor activities such as golf, tennis, handball, biking, running and skating. While in Forest Park, make sure to check out the Muny outdoor theater, the St. Louis Zoo, the Missouri History Museum and the St. Louis Art Museum.
