Wentzville Community Center
During a June 2019 Board of Aldermen meeting, an ordinance was passed approving a Development Agreement for the Wentzville Bend project. This development will encompass approximately 60 acres of property located south and east of Wentzville Parkway, and north of William Dierberg Drive.
As currently envisioned, the project consists of two major elements – a 140,000 square-foot retail shopping center and an 80,000 square-foot Multigenerational Recreation Facility.
The Parks Master Plan, Recreation Center Feasibility Study and a series of public meetings all indicated a strong desire exists within the community to have a Multigenerational Recreation Facility in Wentzville.
“We are very excited to provide this new amenity to our residents. The Board of Aldermen and I are committed to providing resources for our residents and the community as a whole. This project falls in line with our strategic goals and recognizes the distinct needs of our residents – varying from indoor recreational opportunities to amenities for senior citizens. This facility solidifies Wentzville’s position as a strong supporter of parks and recreation and only adds to our wide variety of facilities from Splash Station Aquatic Center and the tournament-level Peruque Valley Park baseball fields to the recently purchased Wentzville Ice Arena. Wentzville truly offers something for everyone,” said Mayor Nick Guccione.
During a January 2020 Board of Aldermen meeting, an ordinance was passed which formally named the multigenerational recreation facility the Wentzville Community Center. This name was proposed by a committee tasked with coming up with a list of names, was then approved by the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board. After being passed by the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, a public survey was conducted to determine the name.
