215 Valley Park Road
Saint Louis, MO 63026
Buder Park is located on the south bank of the Meramec River across from Valley Park. Part of the original land was lost with the construction of Interstate 44, and the park was split into the upper area on the hill, now called Buder South, and lower area close to the river. In the early 1960's, the radio controlled model plane flying field and polo field were constructed.
Using funds from the 1969 Bond Issue, Buder South was developed (shelters, playground, tennis courts) and lower Buder facilities were upgraded. These new facilities were completed and dedicated in 1972.
Park Hours: 8 a.m. to one half hour past official sunset,
except when reservations are issued.
In 2012, Eagle Project lead by Eagle Scout Drew Pfyl along with the help of county park employees, friends and family developed and constructed an archery range at Buder Park that meets ADA regulations. Quote from Drew "My project will be helpful to the community because there are no parks in the area that enable individuals with disabilities to shoot archery. Archery is very important to me, I love the sport and want to help those with disabilities that would otherwise not be able to take up the sport of archery."
