Oakville, Missouri, located in South St. Louis County, offers the perfect blend of small town living and big-city convenience.
Oakville spent many years as predominantly farmland, but since the 1970s, and especially in the past decade, Oakville has developed into the modern suburb it now is, with numerous businesses and residential areas.
If you like shopping, then you’ll love the strip malls lining the central Oakville corridor of Telegraph Road. For a more serious shopping fix, the newly expanded and renovated South County Center – which has more than 130 shops and eateries – is just minutes away.
Oakville residents have a gold mine of choices for outdoor and indoor recreation, such as the nearby Kennedy Recreation Complex (known to locals as “Kennedy Rec-plex”), which offers an outdoor pool, indoor ice-skating rink, tennis courts and creative playground, and the Quail Creek Golf Course. Also on Wells Road is St. Louis’s beloved Suson Park, where kids of all ages flock to visit the Animal Farm and its resident farm animals – for free!
Residents also love Oakville’s Bee Tree Park, where they can fish, hike the three-mile trail, picnic and play on the playground. Don’t miss the historic Jefferson Barracks Park (and National Cemetery), where visitors enjoy field archery, a lighted ball field, field archery, picnic sites, and an amphitheater, where the popular free summer concert series is held.
