Founded in 1767 along the Mississippi River south of St. Louis, The French village of Carondelet became part of city of St. Louis in 1870. You’ll find some of the oldest homes in St. Louis made of local red brick-still inhabited in this charming south St. Louis neighborhood.
At 180 acres, Carondelet Park is one of the largest parks in St. Louis. Its lakes are stocked for fishing and it offers a bike path, picnic areas and sports facilities. Be sure to check out a new project in the neighborhood – Murals on Broadway public art program. The first mural was dedicated last summer, with eight to ten more planned.
It’s easy to pair a visit to the Carondelet neighborhood with a stop at Jefferson Barracks Park and its history museums or the impressive National Cemetery at Jefferson Barracks. The neighborhood is also bordered by the River City Casino where you can visit Lady Luck.
