Welcome to Our Page!
The Park Hills-Leadington Chamber of Commerce would like to welcome you to Park Hills, Missouri and Leadington, Missouri. We hope you will enjoy the friendly small-town atmosphere as much as we have.
The Park Hills and Leadington communities have both played roles in Southeast Missouri’s rich mining history. The “Lead Belt” was once one of the largest producers of lead in the world. With the depletion of this resource, the cities have met the challenges of transitioning from a mining-based economy to one much more diversified. Many small businesses are flourishing and more start-up businesses are opening each year.
We are very proud to have one of the finest community colleges in the state within our city limits. Both cities share an award-winning public school system, which is fully supported by a proud community.
If you enjoy the outdoors, you will love our parks. Our city parks are well-maintained and we are blessed with St. Joe State Park, one of the most visited state parks in the U.S., located right on our doorstep.
Whether just visiting or a new neighbor, you will find that Park Hills and Leadington are friendly, fun-filled communities. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Park Hills-Leadington Chamber of Commerce at (573) 431-1051. It is a distinct privilege to welcome you to our cities.

With safety as a top priority, they have L-screens built to withstand 100 + mph baseballs or softballs, state of the art baseball pitching mounds and an area for softball pitching as well. Each cage has regular baseballs and softballs along with balls designed for use in pitching machines.
