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!

St. Louis is fortunate to have many outstanding parks. Forest Park is the best know and overshadows some of the other wonderful parks here. Tower Grove Park was donated to the city by Henry Shaw,a St. Louis businessman, who also established the Missouri Botanical Gardens. T G Park seems to have meandered in and out of my life over several... More

This gift to the city is a wonderful oasis in South City. Unique trails to run, bike or walk. Beautiful gardens and a Saturday market like no other.

Located near the Missouri Botanical Gardens, Tower Grove Park is a beautiful oasis in the historic district of Tower Grove. Pair with a visit to the Garden and/or South Grand Blvd. shopping and dining.
