Creve Coeur Lake

Creve Coeur is a 320-acre lake located in the Missouri River floodplain, where the nutrient-rich soil is easily eroded. Even though the lake is part of a 1,141-acre park, the area adjacent to the lake is urban. Creve Coeur Lake differs from all of the other lakes in the program in that it is not a reservoir, but an oxbow lake. Having once been part of the Missouri River, this lake is now about two miles from the present channel, separated over time by the natural meandering of the river.
