The Parks and Recreation Department coordinates recreational programs and events for residents of all ages; manages all room, field and pavilion reservations for city properties; and manages the municipal golf course and ice arena.
The public is invited to complete an online survey about Dr. H. Phillip Venable Memorial Park to share feedback on future park improvements and the memorial honoring Dr. Venable. Survey responses will guide the consultant, HDR, and city staff as they continue to develop the Venable Park Master Plan.
As part of a continued effort to improve operation and efficiency at the Creve Coeur Ice Arena, the City of Creve Coeur has contracted with PROS Consulting to conduct a program review and market analysis for the facility.
The ice arena is an aging facility constructed in 1970. In order to maintain the ice arena, the facility will require a significant investment of city funds in the near future, including updates to the 18-year-old refrigerant system. The results of the study will help guide the City Council's decision on whether city funds should go toward maintaining the facility's aging infrastructure or whether the City should consider alternative uses for the ice arena that may better serve the community.
Pros Consulting was hired to draft a report to review the ice arena operations, as well as make recommendations for improvements and alternative uses of the facility. The draft report was presented to the City Council and Facilities Task Force during the joint work session on June 13, 2022.
