Reviewed June 17, 2014

for a city park - lots of parking, tip top maintenance and a lot to see. A big surprise and a good one.

“Tons of green space, with tons of shelters in tons of styles”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

There is a fairly enormous park in the middle of St. Louis, and it has a great little road going through it, with shelters and gazebos along the road. It can accommodate a lot of people without feeling crowded.

Also, there is Cafe Madeline on the grounds of the park, with a great upscale buffet in a historic greenhouse building.

“Little known Farmers Market”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Although Tower Grove Park is a great park with a lot of playing fields and places to walk, during the spring and summer they have a farmers market on Saturdays with some local farmers and business selling their produce and products. Another nice feature is the food trucks, which make for a nice breakfast.

“Best City Park Ever!”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

This park is an oasis in the city. A great place to just walk through in any season as it changes from the snowy winter months to the blossoming of spring. The park is especially great during the summer with the farmer's market, band concerts and lots of events and activities to enjoy. It was owned by the late Henry Shaw who started the Botanical Gardens which is just blocks away. There is something for everyone at this gem of a park!

“Farmers Market and more”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

One of the city's oldest parks, Tower Grove has an outstanding Farmers Market during late spring and all through the summer. Try to arrive early as the free yoga class right at the market ends at 10 and the participants flood the market. Music weekely, delicious booths provide breakfast/brunch fare and food trucks fill in the gaps. Great playground for the little ones and a really fun 'water' playground for hot summer mornings. Bring dry clothes for your tots.
