Positive: Clean bathrooms and close to downtown Gulfport. Other than that there isn't much good to say about the park. It rained the weekend we were there and there was standing water everywhere. Just a concrete lot that seems a little seedy. Office isn't open regular hours, but the guy who worked there was very helpful when we could catch him in. Nothing for kids to do there. I probably would not go back there.
This is not your typical metro area park. Five minutes from St. Louis but with a few trees and a warm feeling. Bathrooms are very clean, and there is a pool. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They also have an on-site barbecue restaurant. We would stay there again and recommend it to anyone who wants to be close to downtown St. Louis.
