The Maples Park is the very first park owned and managed by the City of Crestwood. The 22 beautiful acres were purchased by the City in 2005 from Vincent Fanelli whereas, the Fanelli family gave strict stipulations to the sale indicating that the property use should only be for creating opportunities for recreation, environmental exploration and entertainment for the community. These 22 acres, known historically as “The Maples” due to the abundant site maple tree plantings along the former entry road, was once used for small-scale boutique farming and country-side enjoyment.
