Explore St. Louis: Watson Trail Park

I first discovered Watson Trail Park last Winter as I was driving to our new house while we were still just working on it. I wasn't very familiar with the part of town we moved to and I was excited (and still am) to find fun places close to home. The trees had no leaves so it was easier to see from the main road. I decided to drive by it to get a better look and noticed there was a fishing pond and bridge with walking trails and a playground. I thought it would be a great place to take the kids this Spring. It's less than 5 minutes from our house, so that makes it even better.

So when I decided to take some pictures of them together, I thought this would be a good and close place to go. It ended up being a perfect place with such pretty flowers and trails. Of course the kids had one thing on their mind... the playground! So that was my bribe, sit nice for your pictures and we'll play on the playground. ;-)

So after our little photo session, I let them play on the playground and they loved it! Jackson said it was the best playground ever! Ha.

Here are a few pictures on the trail and around the pond.

After our little walk around the pond, we headed up to the playground.
