River’s Edge Lake features a boat dock attached to a park shelter and contains “copious amounts” of fish for recreational anglers. The park also has a 2-mile crushed limestone walking path that encircles the lake and branches off to two boardwalks and a mulched trail. The 188-acre property is located near the heart of Chesterfield Valley but is tucked away from the retail area just south of the Missouri River.
