We wanted something to do while in STL, so we could just talk, hold hands and spend time together. This place was beautiful, peaceful, lots of places to walk, sit and talk. Many fountains, very large, much bigger than we thought, we even lost the car for a few minutes. Nice place to relax for couples, families, joggers.

Stay away from this park. High crime area. When in St. Louis in general you need to be aware of your surroundings.

This are was at one time the place where the who's who of the old mercantile and industrial families of wealth enjoyed time off in days gone by, but the area is restored and the house looking better than original but the real treat is the park and many many different yet old gazebo's from an era gone by but...

I should know...I lived in Tower Grove Heights for years. I visited this park often and have very fond memories. It's HUGE, great for walking - the tree-lined paths make you forget you are in a city. Nice water features, architecture, many trees (lots of different types), - all of which make TGP ideal for festivals, picnics, weddings, pictures, sports,... More

My daughter had her wedding reception at the Piper Palm House, ten years ago. We lived nearby, and our kids played soccer and softball here. But the greatest asset seems to be the ever enriched diversity of trees and their seasonal changes. It is a delight to just drive throught the Park, instead of outside, to enjoy the wonderful trees... More

Tower Grove Park is awesome! I have worked in the park at the Farmer's Market almost every Saturday for the last two years (the market runs from late April to mid-November) and have enjoyed every minute. It's large and beautifully maintained (except for the restrooms) and a great place for a walk, a run, a picnic or just to sit... More

Recent stroll with my dog, I discovered a row of holly trees lining one of the walks. was a great surprise, since I grew up playing in this s park. It's always a joy to walk and discover something new. One of the country's last example of a Victorian walking park. Must see.

This park is so huge that you can spend a lot of time strolling, playing, resting and just taking in the beauty of the nature featured there. It is so easy to park along its perimeter and gain access from anywhere and then have a picnic, a game of Frisbee, tennis, or football!
