Parks
city of
St. Louis
Missouri
As the second largest urban park in the country, it's no wonder that Forest Park
is a defining feature of the St. Louis community and beloved by so many locals.
The park is around 1,300 acres and attracts more than 12 million visitors per
year. Forest Park served as the location for the 1904 World’s Fair, and holds
various monuments and historic buildings on its sites today. The Saint Louis
Zoo, Art Museum, Missouri History Museum, Science Center, Muny Opera are
all institutions within the park. It also provides recreation spaces across its
grounds for golf, tennis, baseball, soccer, rugby, cycling, fishing, ice skating,
paddle boating, running, walking and more. In addition to all of these features,
there is a plethora of waterways, wildlife and scenery to enjoy.
Forest Park
Tower Grove Park, founded in 1868, also hosts an impressive array of attrac-
tions, including historic buildings and architecture, famous collection statues
and busts, impressive trees and plant species. There are around 7,000 trees in
Tower Grove Park, boasting approximately 340 tree types. The Piper Palm &
Plant House within the park is the oldest greenhouse west of the Mississippi
River. There are also historic stables, where clydesdales horses and ponies reside,
and visitors can enjoy carriage rides around the park. Tower Grove Park also has
dozens of recreational spaces such as playgrounds, courts, sports fields, trails and
open green spaces. There are multiple historic pavilions and picnic sites on the
grounds as well. The park hosts multiple iconic events throughout the year,
including the International Institutes Festival of Nations, Sauce Food Truck
Friday, and Tower Grove Farmers Market.
An obvious iconic symbol of St. Louis, the Gateway Arch National Park must be
included. The monument was founded by the National Park Service in 1935 to
honor Thomas Jefferson’s vision of a transcontinental United States and expan-
sion of the West. Construction of the Arch was completed in 1965. The main
attraction of the park is the tram ride that takes you up 630 feet to the top of the
Arch, where visitors enjoy a 360 degree view of the city and the Mississippi River.
The Arch also covers 630 feet across the ground from leg to leg. Beneath the
grounds, there is also an interactive, free museum dedicated to St. Louis’ role in
westward expansion, Native Americans, explorers and pioneers. As it is a Nation-
al Park, there is 91 acres of beautiful green space on the lawn as well. Tickets for
the tram ride are $15 for adults.
Because of its grandiosity, the Missouri Botanical Garden felt like an appropriate
addition to this list. The garden was founded in 1859 and is the nation's oldest
botanical garden in continuous operation and a National Historic Landmark. The
park boasts 79 acres of beautiful greenery, 14 of which are dedicated to the
iconic Japanese strolling garden. The grounds also feature historic architecture
and one of the world's largest collections of rare and endangered flora. They also
serve as a center for botanical research, conservation and education. Outside of
the city, the Missouri Botanical Garden also operates two other habitat conserva-
tion sites – the Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House, located in Chesterfield's Faust
Park, and the 2400-acre Shaw Nature Reserve in Gray Summit, Missouri. Tickets
to the garden are $6 for St. Louis residents.

Another example of historic St. Louis architecture is within Compton Hill Reser-
voir Park. The iconic structure of the park is a standpipe water tower built in
1899, and there are two others like it in St. Louis (the Grand Avenue Water
Tower and the Bissell Street Water Tower). All rising over 150 feet in the air, the
structures historically served the city as functioning water towers. There are only
4 other standpipe water towers that still exist today across the country. The base
of the water tower was converted to a community park in the 1930s, featuring the
original Italian Romanesque architecture as well as other additions such as
impressive staircase, ornamental balustrades, fountains, tennis courts, dog park,
walking paths and statues. Visitors can climb 198 stairs to the top of the water
tower for a great view of the city. Visit the park’s website for limited hours.
Established in 1838, Lafayette Square Park is one of the city’s first public parks
and is around 30 acres. There are paths for walking and running throughout the
park, and fences and gates that surround the park are part of the original architec-
ture. There is also a historic house on the grounds of the park, built in 1867 as a
police station. It now functions as the office for the Lafayette Square Restoration
Committee and a substation for the STL Police Department. Another historic
feature of the park is three giant canons that were donated to the park. They were
originally aboard a Revolutionary War ship, the British frigate Actaeon, which
was shipwrecked in 1776 and recovered in the Charleston, South Carolina
harbor. Visitors can also enjoy statues, fountains, a kids playground, a gorgeous
rockery with an original iron bridge, and a sports field that hosts a vintage base-
ball league.

Tower Grove Park Gateway Arch National Park Missouri Botanical Garden Compton Hill Resoivoir Park Lafayeytte Square Park Another example of historic St. Louis architecture is within Compton Hill Reser- voir Park. The iconic structure of the park is a standpipe water tower built in 1899, and there are two others like it in St. Louis (the Grand Avenue Water Tower and the Bissell Street Water Tower). All rising over 150 feet in the air, the structures historically served the city as functioning water towers. There are only 4 other standpipe water towers that still exist today across the country. The base of the water tower was converted to a community park in the 1930s, featuring the original Italian Romanesque architecture as well as other additions such as impressive staircase, ornamental balustrades, fountains, tennis courts, dog park, walking paths and statues. Visitors can climb 198 stairs to the top of the water tower for a great view of the city. Visit the park’s website for limited hours. Established in 1838, Lafayette Square Park is one of the city’s first public parks and is around 30 acres. There are paths for walking and running throughout the park, and fences and gates that surround the park are part of the original architec- ture. There is also a historic house on the grounds of the park, built in 1867 as a police station. It now functions as the office for the Lafayette Square Restoration Committee and a substation for the STL Police Department. Another historic feature of the park is three giant canons that were donated to the park. They were originally aboard a Revolutionary War ship, the British frigate Actaeon, which was shipwrecked in 1776 and recovered in the Charleston, South Carolina harbor. Visitors can also enjoy statues, fountains, a kids playground, a gorgeous rockery with an original iron bridge, and a sports field that hosts a vintage base- ball league. 2 3 4 5 6 Local Favorites Art Hill Great for picnics, sunbathing or sledding The Zoo Completely free and fun for all ages The Boathouse Waterside dining and paddleboat rentals 1 Local Favorites Local Favorites Japanese strolling garden Beautiful 14 acres, and hosts annual Japanese Festival Garden Glow Holiday display with nearly two million lights Butterfly House Located in Chesterfield, but worth the drive Pavillions Unique European architecture The Stables Reserve a historic carriage ride Impressive trees The park is an accredited Arboretum Local Favorites Tram ride Visit the top of the tallest US monument for a great view Interactive museum Educational exhibits and virtual reality experiences Activities on the lawn Great events like yoga, races and festivals Local Favorites Climbing the water tower First Saturday of every month, and every full moon!
