Join in the Frontier Experience at Towne Park on Aug. 9

St. Charles County, Missouri – Take a journey back in time and experience fun games, demonstrations and activities that highlight the era of the Missouri Frontier from 10 3 p.m., on Saturday, August 9, at St. Charles County’s Towne Park, 100 Towne Park Dr. (at the Farris Rd. exit off Highway 61) near Foristell. The Frontier Experience is a free program hosted by the St. Charles County Parks and Recreation Department and is fun for the entire family.

"St. Charles County's Frontier Experience provides the perfect opportunity for families, Scout groups, organizations and clubs to enjoy a day of entertaining Missouri culture and history at Towne Park," said Parks Director Bettie Yahn-Kramer.

Participants should meet at the restored 1830s homestead, formerly known as the "Pink Plantation," to join in a variety of frontier challenges, which include: model log cabin building, tent setup and take down race, flint and steel fire starting activities, water hauling and atalatl throwing contests, and other frontier activities.

The homestead will also be open for park guests to tour. Learn about the Boyd Family of Kentucky who originally settled the property in 1830 and Betty Towne, the woman who donated the property to the St. Charles County Parks Department in 2004. For more information about St. Charles County Parks programs and events, visit or contact the parks department at 636.949-7535.
