Family centric and easy going, young couples, small families, and singles make homes in well-established ranches and multilevel new apartment structures. The city motto is “Bringing People Together,” and in many ways Ballwin does just that.
Taking the name Ballshow for only two days, the town was quickly renamed Ballwin by its founder, John Ball. The city has grown immensely since its original 750 residents to 32,000 today.
Grounded by Manchester Road, which extends to Downtown St. Louis, Ballwin is nearby major interstates 270, 64/40, and 44. Residents are only a 40-minute drive from the city and 30 minutes away from the airport.
Ballwin is filled with family friendly subdivisions that sponsor organized activities and neighborhood parties. With a thriving business district, residents have easy access to many amenities with close proximity to churches, schools, shopping, and parks.
Although the neighborhood has plenty of bars and restaurants, it also offers residents alternative forms of entertainment. With several parks, recreation centers, and a 9-hole golf course, there is something for every member of the community to enjoy.
Every summer people from surrounding neighborhoods attend Ballwin Days, an annual carnival and fair with rides and vendors.
Ballwin has excellent public schools from both the Parkway and Rockwood School Districts. Each district has a number of schools to attend from kindergarten through high school.
