‘Bloomberg Businessweek’ names Ballwin ‘best place to raise kids’
A qualifying characteristic of the city was its $10 million recreation center, The Pointe at Ballwin Commons. Featuring two full gymnasiums, an indoor track, full circuit weight system, dance/aerobic studio, indoor and outdoor pool/aquatic center, game room and kids play area, the recreation center offers something for everyone.
In its review of the city, Bloomberg stated: “It’s hard to imagine needing further entertainment for kids when Ballwin already has a large public recreation center with a full gym, pool and separate outdoor aquatic center. Still, more options are just a quick car ride away in St. Louis. True outdoorsmen can get their hunting fix close to home, as Ballwin allows deer hunting on private property.”
