Great place for a run
Reviewed By 715ralphf August 2017

If you like to run this is a great place to enjoy a very beautiful and peaceful run.To run on the perimeter of the park is exactly one mile around and you won't regret the view.

Beautiful area of St Louis
Reviewed By Michelle N October 2017

We stayed at an airBNB in this area of St Louis and we loved its classic character and architecture. Love all the different doors and colorful buildings. The park is beautiful and the square itself...

I was there last week with my granddaughter, daughter & son in law. It was a fun time watching them play together. I love the fact that there is so much natural beauty in such a small park.
