Tower Grove Park in Saint Louis
Tower Grove Park is vast landscape frozen in time, exuding a quaint and beautiful Victorian essence in the middle of Saint Louis, Missouri. The 289-acre park has found its home at 4256 Magnolia Avenue for over a century, and still retains the aura of the age in which it was gifted to the state of Missouri by Henry Shaw.
Some of the breathtaking landscape and structural elements that distinguish the park from others in both beauty and style are the culturally diverse pavilions, grandiose statues and vibrant botanical gardens.
With such an aesthetically pleasing display and the accommodating Piper Palm House within the park, the park lends itself perfectly to special occasions like wedding ceremonies and receptions. The Piper Palm House is the oldest standing greenhouse west of the Mississippi, and is a scenic and architectural gem in the already impressive Tower Grove Park. There is a quant brunch held every Sunday in the house at Café Madeleine. Combine this lovely meal with one of Tower Grove’s stately carriage ride for the perfect Sunday afternoon.
Even if you aren’t looking for extravagance during your visit, the park is the perfect area for bird-watching, jogging, scenic walks and other sports and recreational activities. For park information or to make an event reservation, call (314) 771-2679.
