This "hidden" gem is located just west of St. Louis in Gray Summit MO. It is part of the Missouri Botanical Garden family. Lots of walking trails of all types. Great views and spectacular flowers.Full Review
This a such a beautiful place for a short stroll a medium walk or a long hike any time of year but Saturday the weather was perfect for it and all the wild flowers and flowering trees made it a day...Full Review
