  • Very pretty park close to the botanical garden. Several gazebos, playgrounds, lake, good for walking & biking. Especially pretty in the fall & spring. 
  • One of the last Victorian parks in the country. Nice place to relax and also enjoy the sculptures and the gazebos. Great place to picnic especially if you are romantic. 
  • A gorgeous park! It's pretty big and surrounded by beautiful old homes. It's kept up pretty well, lots of walking and biking trails, gazebos and green space. Lots of historical buildings too. It was c...  more »

  • A great place to relax and enjoy your leisure time or do something more up tempo. There is a private tennis club in the park you can go to if you have a membership, but there are also several paved that go both along the inside and perimeter. Food Truck Friday is a blast and a must for anyone interested in a fun and unique dining experience.
  • Great place to run and walk. Lots of ball fields. Food Truck Fridays the first Friday and farmers' market every Saturday in the warmer months. Adjacent to South Grand, so there's a bunch of places to eat nearby. The Missouri Botanical Garden in just north of the park. A ton of pravilions to rent, or use if no one has claimed them. There's also a playground and wading pool for the kids.
  • Tower Grove Park is wonderful. It's a large park in the middle of South city well-known for it's athletic fields, weekend kickball leagues, gorgeous running trails, bird sanctuary, and architectural pavilions perfect for family reunions and large picnics. The park also features Food Truck Fridays during the summer, and the tower Grove farmers market on Saturday mornings for much if the year. If you're a St. Louis tourist, I'd say prioritize Forest Park on your list. But if you're a local -or a prospective local-living near Tower Grove is an incredible perk.
  • Large park with great sitting spots, unique architecture and nice walking trails. The playground is ok but not what I come here for. Close in proximity to the Botanical Garden. There are frequently wedding parties snapping photos here and I'm sure they turn out beautifully.
  • Love this park. Very well kept and clean. Safe Park never seen anything sketchy or weird going on here. Always seems like something cool is going on. Check it out on the weekends for a good time.
