“great picnic spot in the city”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

You'll like getting away from it all and you can do this right in the city. It is a great place to go for a simple picnic even during the rush of the day. Great place for a run also although maybe a bit small for bike riding.

“Ride in the Park”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

We arrived in the late afternoon, rather tired from the week just finished and our long drive. We engaged the services of Jimmy John, a stately Clydesdale, and his driver for a carriage ride through Tower Grove Park. The driver was a wonderful tour guide, telling us so many interesting details about the lovely park. What a great way to start a great weekend! Ask for Jimmy John!

“A fantastic place to meet or have a gathering”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

My office has it's annual summer picnic here-- it costs us about $65 to rent a larger pavilion, which comes with a single grill and about seven picnic tables. Clean, well maintained, quiet, and lovely. In the summer they have a farmer's market that draws in artisan vendors from a large area. Really a gem-- the ruins along the water feature, the sculptures, this is a must-visit place.

“A trip back to Victorian times”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

This a beautifully restored Victorian era park complete with several colorful gazebos, a bandstand, excellent statues and monuments and well-marked and maintained trails. It's well- manicured, safe and clean and a welcome respite from the bust Grand Blvd. Bring your cameras!

“2 great visits so far”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

We have gone to tower grove park twice so far since moving to St. Louis in late July and both times have been very positive. The first time was to the international festival and the second time to the Saturday farmers market. Both instances were great.
