Weldon Spring has an interesting history as being first the site of a U.S. government TNT factory and later as a nuclear waste dump. The remnants of this dangerous history have long ago been cleaned up. Today, the small community is an idyllic congregation of houses surrounded by parkland. The tranquil setting makes Weldon Spring an attractive community for a person with a canine family member.
This city of just over five thousand permanent residents has one veterinary clinic. This clinic can handle most of the routine and emergency needs. Additional specialties are just a short drive away in growing cities of Saint Peters and Saint Charles.
The city has one park in town. The Weldon Spring City Park is the center of the town's activities. It has a stocked fishing pond, pavilions, and walking paths. You and your leashed dog will pawsitively love walking in this green space.
For a more extensive outdoor experience, Weldon Spring Conservation Area is the place to visit. Here, you'll find over eight thousand acres of land set aside for recreation and conservation. The famous Katy Trail State Park cuts through this property. You and a canine pal can follow the Missouri River for 5.3 miles on the trail. The Lewis and Clark Trail is another popular hiking destination. This is a natural dirt trail through some heavily forested and scenic parts of the Conservation Area. This trail has a five-mile and an eight-mile loop to experience with your leashed buddy.
