Parks and Recreation

Founders' Day was a great way for families to experience what life was like when O'Fallon was first founded. Now, watch all the highlights from Founders' Day 2015.

The RSC is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month, and we're taking a look back to see how it all got started!

On Friday, May 16, cheer on the racers at O’Fallon’s first nighttime 5K obstacle course, and then enjoy watching a movie with your family, free, outside the Renaud Spirit Center. The movie is part of the Ready.Set.Glow! 5K Run & Family Challenge Night entertainment, which includes music, food trucks, the Bubble Bus and kids’ activities. The race is filled, but spectators are encouraged to cheer the participants on as they try to figure out the fastest way over, around or through the obstacles along the course. The race gets underway at 7 p.m. and the movie will start after the race is over at about 8 p.m.

To watch the movie, Despicable Me2 (rated PG), bring a blanket or lawn chair for seating outside the Renaud Spirit Center recreation complex, which is located at 2650 Tri Sports Circle, O’Fallon, Missouri 63368. In this funny sequel to the cartoon feature Despicable Me, supervillain Gru has retired from villainy to raise his three adopted daughters, Margo, Edith and Agnes. When the Anti-Villain League taps him to find and capture a super criminal, Gru at first refuses, until his hilarious yellow minions start turning into angry purple monsters.


An exhibit of images created by mathematician Rosalie Wheeler opens Friday, April 18, and will remain on display through May 30 at O’Fallon’s Cultural Arts Center Gallery in the Renaud Spirit Center (RSC) recreation complex, 2650 Tri Sports Circle, O’Fallon, Missouri 63368.

Rosalie Wheeler, a data scientist who holds a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics, is a new artist whose passion for mathematics carries over into her colorful, kaleidoscope-like images of fluorite (a gemstone), roses, pansies, seeds, lily pads, a Florida sunset, and Seattle’s sea and sky.
