St. Louis County borders but does not include St. Louis, an independent city. However, it is the largest county by population in the Greater St. Louis metropolitan statistical area and the largest county by population in the state of Missouri.
Culturally, St. Louis County is often divided into Mid, North, West and South sections. Firstly, the many pro athletes, professionals, and new wealth inhabiting North County create a large area of high-income residents. Communities include Ballwin, Chesterfield, Clarkson Valley, Des Peres, Ellisville, Eureka, Manchester, Town and Country, Twin Oaks, Valley Park, Creve Coeur, and Wildwood.
Next, Mid County includes the central and eastern portion of the county. The bulk of it lies just west of the city of St. Louis. Municipalities include Clayton, Maplewood, Brentwood, Webster Groves, Richmond Heights, Frontenac, Warson Woods, Ladue, Kirkwood, Rock Hill, Olivette, University City, St. Ann, and Overland.
Then, North County is home to Boeing’s Defense, Space, & Security unit, Lambert-St. Louis International Airport, and Emerson Electric Company. That population is one of the most diverse in St. Louis County. North County has benefited from public transportation and was the first area of Metro St. Louis to use the metropolitan rail system, MetroLink. Cities of North County include Bellefontaine Neighbors, Bridgeton, Ferguson, Jennings and Spanish Lake. However, residents of some communities, such as Bridgeton and Hazelwood, often distinguish themselves from locations further north by labeling their area as “Northwest County.”
And lastly, there’s South County. While largely populated, it is unincorporated. It is the most homogeneous area within St. Louis county and major communities include Fenton, Lemay, Mehlville, Oakville, Affton, and Sunset Hills. The start of the Ozark Mountains and Ozark plateau begin in South St. Louis county and neighboring Jefferson County. Therefore, many communities have an abundance of gently rolling hills.
Additionally, St. Louis County owns and maintains more than forty parks as part of its county park system, including playgrounds and nature preserves. It also operates several recreation centers, the Museum of Transportation, and the Affton Community Center. In addition to parks owned by St. Louis County, the county is home to three Missouri state parks: Babler, Castlewood, and Route 66 State Park, and part of the Big Muddy National Fish and Wildlife Refuge and the Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site.
