The park's Astronomy Viewing Area is the first of its kind in St. Charles County. Every Friday night, weather permitting, the skies come alive as members of the Astronomical Society of Eastern Missouri (ASEM) offer public stargazing events beginning at dusk.
The park also includes a Visitors Center with a meeting room and scenic outdoor patio and deck that is available to reserve for parties and other special events, and 4-acre Historic Educational Agricultural Area that features a variety of crops grown in St. Charles County.
Named in honor of the family of Jack Broemmelsiek, this park is rich in St. Charles County history. The home where Jack Broemmelsiek and his family lived for more than 30 years has been transformed into a visitors center.
From Highway 40/61, exit at the WingHaven Boulevard (Highway DD) interchange and go south on Highway DD for approximately 4 miles and turn right into the park entrance. An additional entrance is located on Wilson Road for the dog park and small fishing lake.
