Brentwood, Missouri, in the heart of St. Louis County, offers the perfect blend of small-town feel with big-city convenience. Residents of the 200-year-old Brentwood enjoy the city’s myriad opportunities – from shopping to restaurants, from family activities to superior schools. Access to Interstate 40 means you’re minutes from downtown, Forest Park, the Zoo, the Science Center, and dozens more St. Louis attractions.
The Brentwood School District, which serves K-12 students, has received the Distinction in Performance award by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education for its exemplary educational rankings.
If shopping is your bag, Brentwood is the place to live. Imagine residing in the same neighborhood as the St. Louis Galleria, the metro area’s premier shopping destination – or dropping by Brentwood Promenade for some 300,000 square feet of retail therapy a lá Target Greatland, Trader Joe’s and World Market. Visit the vibrant “village” of The Boulevard to shop at Crate & Barrel or Ann Taylor Loft, and eat till you burst at the incomparable Maggiano’s Little Italy.
Brentwood is just minutes from the 75-acre Tilles Park, where visitors can play on the “Most Fun Playground in Town” (according to Ladue News’ readers), cool off in the Splash Pool, fish or play tennis. Tilles Park truly comes alive in December, when it is magically transformed – via more than one million lights – into a Winter Wonderland. Visitors can drive or take a carriage ride through the mile-long holiday display.
Through the Parks and Recreation Cooperative (PARC), a partnership with the neighboring towns of Maplewood and Richmond Heights, Brentwood residents are given access (and resident rates) to those towns’ recreational facilities, pool, ice rink, leagues and activities.
Brentwood, Missouri. Call it cosmopolitan, call it friendly – call it home.
