THE FEEL

While Des Peres embraces its history, it continues to look ahead, building new subdivisions and housing developments. The neighborhood is just as focused on its resident’s health as their homes, with several community facilities that promote a healthy lifestyle.

HISTORY

The Des Peres community fosters a heritage of helping others. The presence of its German settlers is still felt through the flowers and greenhouses that dress the neighborhood today.

ACCESSIBILITY

Des Peres is strategically nestled along Manchester Road, which runs east and west through the majority of St. Louis. The neighborhood is also conveniently located near interstates 270, 64/40, and 44, giving commuters plenty of access to the city and the rest of the area.

CULTURE

Headquarters of financial firms Edward Jones and Scottrade, Des Peres caters to the business crowd during the day. Commuters and residents both partake in the amenities the neighborhood has to offer, from shopping at West County Mall, restaurants along Manchester, and even a local theater. There’s a summer concert series in (surprise) the summer and plenty of local activities during the holiday season.

ENTERTAINMENT

There is a great balance of retail and recreational activities for residents to enjoy. At The Lodge, the whole family can participate in aquatics, sports, and fitness classes. At the West County Center, there are a variety of bars and restaurants for happy hour and date nights.  Antique collectors and fans of boutique shops will enjoy the cozy stores that dot the landscape of Manchester Road.
