Fall Hayride Events


Parks are the ideal location to drink in the beauty of our autumn season. There are trees and shrubs that turn colors in every suburb but we are often too busily engaged in our daily pursuits to appreciate the colorful displays they offer. A leisurely drive through a County Park, sitting with your family upon bales of straw, the wind in your hair and the cool autumn breeze pulling forth the odor of Missouri’s woodland offers the most scintillating experience. Each Fall, many park visitors, look forward to St. Louis County Parks’ Fall Family hayrides that are offered throughout many of the parks that one would normally have to walk through to see the splendor of the foliage.
