Wildwood blends a touch of city and country living. Housing options range from elegant new neighborhoods to original farmhouses with plentiful acreage. What makes Wildwood most picturesque is the way its residents and planners have been able to intermix an urban sensibility with the natural beauty of the area.
Area residents who wished to provide a blueprint for their own destiny, set by those who were most affected by local government decisions, created the City of Wildwood. This desire led to a five-year incorporation effort created, led, and funded by residents only, with challenges throughout its existence.
The Missouri Supreme Court allowed the creators of this community to place the question of creating a new city before the residents of the unincorporated portion of St. Louis county, which was overwhelmingly approved by the voters. On September 1, 1995, Wildwood incorporated and the community began its journey to destiny.
Wildwood is near Interstate 109, intersecting I-44 for travel downtown. Manchester Road connects Wildwood with surrounding neighborhoods Eureka, Ballwin, and Chesterfield.
As the name might suggest, Wildwood is the sort of town where residents and locals take advantage of the outdoors. A big draw is the new Wildwood Town Center, an outdoor walkable shopping district.
Wildwood is a place where people seek active entertainment. In addition to the parks and trails in the neighborhood, the area features Babler state park, Hidden Valley Ski Resort, and Six Flags St. Louis.
Wildwood is part of the Rockwood and Meramec Valley R-III school districts. The neighborhood also houses the Wildwood Campus of St. Louis Community College system.
