 Profile of Arnold
by Sid Cameron, (Data by: U.S. Census Bureau, Census 2000)

Setting about 18 miles southwest of downtown St. Louis where the Meramec River flows into the Mississippi, you'll find the outer ring suburb of Arnold, Missouri. In 2008, Money Magazine ranked Arnold as the 12th best city for affordable homes.

Located in the northeast tip of Jefferson County, Arnold is well connected to the St. Louis region thanks to Interstate 55 which runs northeast to downtown St. Louis and gives residents easy access to the outer-belt Interstate 270 and Interstate 255 which crosses the Mississippi River into Illinois. Arnold is also serviced by Highway 141 which connects it to northern suburbs as well as Highways 61/67 which parallel I-55.

Arnold has seen significant growth over the past 10 years. As population has grown to an estimated 25,000 people, there has been significant development of retail shopping and dining with major retailers such as Lowes, PetSmart and Wal-Mart building new facilities in 2007 and 2008.

A strong point for Arnold has to be it's parks and recreation department as it offers several parks covering almost 400 acres. This includes hiking trails, playgrounds, picnic shelters, tennis courts ball fields and both an indoor and outdoor swimming pool. Because of Arnold's proximity to the Meramec and Mississippi rivers, residents also enjoy easy access to fishing, boating and other summer water activities.

For education, Jefferson College, the region's community college, has one of it's three Jefferson County campuses in Arnold. The city is also home to extension campuses for ITT Technical Institute, Metro Business College and Missouri Baptist University. Arnold is served by the Fox C-6 School district.
