There’s No Attraction In The World Like This One In St. Louis
St. Louis is a stunning city, and it’s actually said to be home to more free world-class attractions than anywhere else in the nation. From its museums to its landscapes, there is so much beauty to take in around the city. But no natural place is as lovely as this one park that is accented with stunning man-made creations:
Welcome to the stunning Tower Grove Park!
This stunning landscape was donated to St. Louis by Henry Shaw, founder of the adjacent Missouri Botanical Garden, in 1868 for the pleasure of St. Louisans.
Its landscape is delightful year-round, and Shaw would be proud to see its 150 years of continued use.
When the park's land was donated, Shaw requested it to be used as a park forever.
The park is overflowing with Victorian-era architecture that nods to Henry Shaw's love of travel.
The Sons of Rest Pavilion, pictured here, is just one of the many stunning structures in this 289-acre park. As you may imagine, it's a popular site for weddings.
One of the most striking features of this stunning natural space is its 7,000 trees.
The park's flora and fauna are equally impressive. A striking 400 species of trees and flowering plants make this landscape one of the most diverse in the city. Locals are already gearing up to witness the spring bird migration in this breathtaking habitat.
In fact, the trees are this park's claim to fame, as it boasts the most diverse collection of trees in the country.
No other public park can hold a flame to the beauty of Forest Grove Park. In fact, its forest is valued at an incredible $10,194,424!
If you're starting to feel the onset of cabin fever, a cure for your woes can be found in this incredible park.
The ruins of the old Lindell Hotel look like a scene straight out of Narnia when they're frosted in snow. The paved trails that criss-cross this charming park provide a wintery escape that will leave you mesmerized.
If you head out for a scenic Sunday stroll, you might want to swing by Cafe Madeleine at the Piper Palm House to warm up.
Swing by on a Sunday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. for a brunch buffet that is out of this world. You'll adore this elegant destination located right in the park.
Full of culture and history, Tower Grove Park is undeniably one of the loveliest places in St. Louis.
This world-class attraction becomes a winter wonderland, so you'll have to pay it a visit this season!
There is so much to love at this historic park and its splendor is enhanced in the winter months. What is your favorite structure in the park?
