“can't get enough of this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The second loveliest Victorian era park in America. There's something about the trees, the subtle roll of the landscape, the interesting pavilions. Perfect place for a stroll. I only wish I lived across the street. A much much more special place than the overbuilt, over-paved thing across town that St. Louisians are so proud of.

“Urban beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

This park is well maintained with many different attractive gazebos and a large variety of trees, as well as a beautiful water garden. It is a bit of Victorian charm. You can walk in the roads, there are also some sidewalks or ride bikes. On Saturdays during the late spring, summer, and early fall they have the best St. Louis area Farmers' Market. There are lots of spots to eat south of Arsenal on Grand.

“Best Place to Spend the Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

Tower Grove Park is one of my favorite places to spend the day. The keyword here would be "day" - it gets a bit shady during the evening so we always leave before dusk. There are tennis courts, a play ground, a splash pad for summer time, and LOTS of places to walk. You can easily walk around for hours and hours, and not get bored. Great place for picnics and birthday parties, and close to Tower Grove Creamery... so you can get some ice cream after your walk. ;)

“great picnic spot in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

You'll like getting away from it all and you can do this right in the city. It is a great place to go for a simple picnic even during the rush of the day. Great place for a run also although maybe a bit small for bike riding.

“Ride in the Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

We arrived in the late afternoon, rather tired from the week just finished and our long drive. We engaged the services of Jimmy John, a stately Clydesdale, and his driver for a carriage ride through Tower Grove Park. The driver was a wonderful tour guide, telling us so many interesting details about the lovely park. What a great way to start a great weekend! Ask for Jimmy John!
