The arch is located in this park and it is great to walk around and take various shots of the arch! We visited after a snow storm, so we could not see the landscape, but I believe it is going to be even better after the renovation project. We will be back!

Beautiful park, a tribute and memorial to our veterans. Beautiful location and clean grounds. .....apparently my review wasn't long enough so I'm making it longer. :)

Naturally, one has to take in the Arch, Riverboat and Old Courthouse. Lots of history in this area of St. Louis.

It is a nice park, with a church from 1834. You can visit the church and I believe it is free. I did not explore the park fully, but the trails are paved and taken care of. Unfortunately, it was under construction when I went.

This is the park the arch is located in and is nice to stroll around getting nice views of the Arch. The grounds are well maintained and very photogenic. peaceful and calm little corners with benches to relax on as well.

The park is located along the Mississippi river bluffs with excellent views of the river. The park has a running course with stops for various things to work the muscles. The park also contains a world class archery path with several miles of targets as you walk through the woods. In addition to Silvian Springs a great place to hold... More

The museum under the arch is decorated and laid out nicely, but the content is rather shallow. You only need an hour or so to read and see everything. Not much of it will be new to you. We saw the film on the construction of the arch - skip it. You can see everything the video tells you by... More

I'm sure most everybody who travels to National Parks know to book tours in advance and the trip up to the top of the Arch is no exception. It wasn't very busy and we arrived late in the afternoon and the tickets were sold out for the day. Book online well in advance of your trip. Also plan on arriving... More

It was very informative. We were there in the winter so no crowds and very little wait time for a ride up the arch. There was a lot of construction in the area with very poor signage.
