Nestled among the rolling hills and limestone of Southwest St. Louis County you will find beautiful Eureka, Missouri. Eureka is unique among other St. Louis County communities for its retention of a small-town atmosphere while still providing access to a major metropolitan area. Beautiful local and State parks and surrounding terrain, quality schools, affordable housing and a very low crime rate are just a few of the amenities that make Eureka a great place to live, work and visit. We are known throughout the region as the home to Six Flags – St. Louis, a major tourist destination.
The City recently opened The Timbers, a state-of-the-art Recreation Center and Municipal Pool. We are proud of our City-wide trail system; having most recently completed the Flat Creek segment, which connects our trail system to Route 66 State Park. Our Parks & Recreation Department provides a multitude of recreational and cultural programming throughout the year that helps to foster community interest and a shared sense of place among residents and visitors alike.
The City of Eureka is located within the award-winning Rockwood School District. The Rockwood School District has been awarded the “Distinction in Performance” award by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and a “Gold Medal” rating from Expansion Management Magazine.
Eureka is conveniently located along Interstate 44 in the southwestern corridor of St. Louis County. Our North/South connection is Highway 109. Highway 109 to the North provides access to communities such as Wildwood, Chesterfield and Ellisville, and to the South, northern Jefferson County. The City of Eureka is located just several minutes East of Franklin County and a mere 20 minutes West of the City of St. Louis, providing nearby access to concerts, shopping, employers, the arts and countless other activities and attractions throughout the entire St. Louis Metropolitan Area.
