Tower Grove Park, a 289 acre park, was originally part of Henry Shaw's vast prairie estate that also included what is now Missouri Botanical Garden. In 1868, Shaw donated the park as a gift to the citizens of the City of St. Louis with the stipulation that it would always remain a park. Modeled after the many pleasure parks Shaw studied in Europe, Tower Grove Park features a playground, children's wading pool, picnic sites, beautiful early 20th century pavilions, athletic fields for softball, baseball, soccer/football and corkball; plus horseshoe pits and tennis courts. The park also hosts many festivals and events throughout the year.
Directions: Tower Grove Park is located between South Grand Blvd and South Kingshighway Blvd, south of Interstate 44, and can be accessed from both those streets and from Arsenal Street and Magnolia Avenue.
