It is close to me so I take the dog there to walk all the time. Lots of other dogs and runners there as well. Beautiful park with many old pavilions, picnic areas, and sports areas. Farmers market in the summers; food truck Fridays in the summer; band and musical events and more festivities from time to time. Also a... More

This park has such fun whimsical pavilions throughout. It's a great bike or walking park with so much to look at. The surrounding neighborhood has some great shops and restaurants. The only bad thing was that one of their speed bumps scraped the underside of my Sentra which did not make me happy. That needs to be fixed.

Tower Grove is a city-within-a-city in St. Louis. It's its own environment complete with a lively downtown (i.e., restaurants, shops, etc.) and a unique inventory of homes. The park was opened in the late 1880s and that is reflected in the series of attractive and sometimes whimsical pavilions that line the interior of the park. In the middle of the... More

This is a beautiful park. Very layed back. Good to take a picnic lunch and walk the grounds. There are old fountains and lakes. Beautiful place to have photos taken. Summers are pretty, winters are pretty

Summer time is a great time to go. Especially for the international festival... I also play in a kickball (big balls) league in the spring and summer here.

As a longtime city resident, Tower Grove has been a destination for our family for years. From the time we took our young sons to the wading pool fountain to the present, bike riding as empty nesters, the park has so much to offer. Saturday farmers' market, running paths, 100 year old trees, lily pad ponds, architectural pavillions, tennis courts... More

Previous experience with park was ran there a couple of times and it is great place to run (Forest Park is better). On a recent trip, our son wanted to expose us to Food Truck Friday. Was not certain what we had committed to but was pleasantly surprised. So many trucks to choose from. Plenty of beverage options including local... More

Park is so nice it passes for a botanical garden and arboretum. Multiple species of trees, interesting gazebos, great place to walk or cycle around.

I hadn't really walked around in this park for years, but we recently went to the Festival of Nations here, and were so surprised at how beautifully landscaped it was. The flowers were spectacular and the Festival was so much fun. Lots of people and food from every place imaginable. I don't remember the park being this memorable years ago... More

Attended a wedding here. What a beautiful, huge park! Looked well kept, family and pet friendly, and clean. Would highly recommend it to travelers who need a place to exercise, walk their dogs, or just relax.
