This park has been lovingly restored by the local residents. It features ponds, bridges and gardens. Has free concerts in the summer. Swans swimming in the large lake and ducks galore. Kids can play on the newly redone playground. Summers have various festivals including historic baseball games.

One if my favorite parks to walk, take my daughter to the playground, watch the ducks, or just relax. Not only is the park beautiful but the architecture and landscaping of the surrounding homes is breathtaking

One of the must see locations of St. Louis boasting the oldest walking park west of the Mississippi River. The residential architecture is one of the best in town. The "painted lady" homes are beautiful. great neighborhood to stroll through. Great restaurants, wine/chocolate bar and coffee shops, as well as great bed and breakfasts locations.

This is one of the largest collections of Victorian homes in the nation, top restaurants, beautiful park and nice walk-around area. You will not be disappointed, also look up when they have their house tours, those are awesome.
