Month-long celebration highlights the value of parks and recreation for local communities

If you’re feeling cramped and as though you don’t get to spend enough time outside, you’re not alone. Nearly three in 10 adults don’t spend time outdoors on a daily basis, and of those who do, almost half spend less than 30 minutes in the fresh air. Those are the findings of a new survey released by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA). This July, O’Fallon’s Parks and Recreation Department and NRPA are challenging everyone to get outdoors and visit the City’s parks and recreational facilities during National Parks and Recreation Month.


Silver Bullet STL’s “Tribute to Bob Seger” will rock Civic Park from 6:30-9 p.m. on Tuesday, June 17. Silver Bullet STL has some of the area’s best musicians performing the music of the legendary Bob Seger, whose “Old Time Rock and Roll” was named one of the Songs of the Century in 2001. For five decades of hits like “Night Moves,” “Turn the Page,” “We’ve Got Tonight,” “Against the Wind,” “Shakedown,” and for co-writing the Eagles’ number one hit, “Heartache Tonight,” Seger was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, and into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame in 2012.

Jammin’ concert admission and parking are free. The food truck lineup for June 17 features Giardina’s Gourmet Dogs, Cha Cha Chow and Kona Ice, with Conley’s Kettle Corn & Cotton Candy providing concessions. Hula hoops and sidewalk chalk will be available for kids’ play, free, and patrons can get free photos in the photo booth sponsored by Renewal by Andersen.

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.
