With its remote setting and limited light pollution, Broemmelsiek Park offers a wonderful opportunity to view the night skies. Open around the clock, the park's unique astronomy viewing area has 10 concrete viewing stations equipped with electrical service to accommodate the latest telescopes. The site is open on a first-come, first-served basis and serves as the primary location for fun weekly stargazing opportunities.
The Parks Department and the Astronomical Society of Eastern Missouri (ASEM) offer educational stargazing programs every Friday night. Weather permitting, discover constellations and stars through complex telescopes. Guests also may bring their own telescope.
All are welcome! Advanced registration requested for large groups.
