The City of Eureka, Missouri Welcomes You!
A Great Place to Live, Work and Visit!
Nestled among the rolling hills and limestone of Southwest St. Louis County you will find beautiful Eureka, Missouri. Eureka is unique among other St. Louis County communities for its retention of a small-town atmosphere while still providing access to a major metropolitan area. Beautiful local and State parks and surrounding terrain, quality schools, affordable housing and a very low crime rate are just a few of the amenities that make Eureka a great place to live, work and visit. We are known throughout the region as the home to Six Flags – St. Louis, a major tourist destination.
The City recently opened The Timbers, a state-of-the-art Recreation Center and Municipal Pool. We are proud of our City-wide trail system; having most recently completed the Flat Creek segment, which connects our trail system to Route 66 State Park. Our Parks & Recreation Department provides a multitude of recreational and cultural programming throughout the year that helps to foster community interest and a shared sense of place among residents and visitors alike.
