This park is worth a visit just to see the pavilions alone - there are several, of different architectural styles, and each is a visual treat. It makes me think of how wonderful cities must have been (at least as far as parks go) circa 1870!

A lot of different constructions, and the spring starting is amazing! It's near the botanical garden, so we went there after.

This a great example of a 19th century urban oasis. Nice natural features, well wooded, with interesting sights and lots of places to rest and picnic. Surrounded by a interesting neighborhoods. Grand Boulevard has a lot of cute shops and retauranrs.

Although Tower Grove Park doesn't have all the museums and attractions of St. Louis' Forest Park, it is a great, historic urban nature park with lots of trees and walking areas and landscaped spaces.

There seems to always be a festival going on during the spring/summer/fall. It's great to talk a walk around the park and discover what the festival of the day is! It's a very well kept park, excellent for running, walking, dog walking, jogging, picnicking, etc.

I recently moved to Shaw, just north of Tower Grove Park. I feel so lucky to have such an asset so close to my door. This has to be in the top 2 scenic locations of the city. Featuring 19th century Gazebos and Pavilions. It's also a fantastic park for exercise and sporting events. In the warmer months, there is... More

This used to be a nice park and I know it's an attraction but it's not safe anymore. This park is now a transient hang out. I would not take my kids here.

This is a great place to attend for Food Truck Fridays during the Spring and Summer months. The street is lined with a variety of food trucks. Bring your own seating and listen to the live music. This is a great place to people watch!

My son was married at the Chinese Pavilion (perfect as his bride is Chinese) and we took pictures by the water fountain after. Lucky to have a nice day in September. I run through that park every day when I visit this town and have never had an issue - ever. Not to say you don't want to be careful... More
