We had a private tour of the city and the guide drove us through the park and past some really beautiful old homes. It was nice to see but there wasn't a lot to do.

My favorite "city" park. Very historical, and very large. Lots of beautiful plants and trees - especially the massive trees. Great place to take a date, a dog, or just yourself. Some pavilions that can be reserved for parties/events. Nearby shops and restaurants offer eclectic food and gifts. Very cultural area. Nice park by any standards.

The land was donated by Henry Shaw, Shaws Gardens just down the street is another must see during warmer seasons. The park has fresh water plants and many events.

We were here last summer and again this winter, and each season had its appeal in the park. Other reviews list the attractions, so I won't repet them. We were staying in an AirBnB apartment nearby and took our daily walks around the park. Next rtip I plan to spend some time in the botanical buildings, and maybe catch brunch.

Lots to see - a proper English-inspired Victorian walking park, with sculptures, vistas, pavilions, quaint bridges, follies in the form of ruins, ponds and fountains and spots for bird watching - and for eating. Go any time. It's safer now than ever, and I've been in the area for over 50 years so I know. Many sports activities during the... More

Tower Grove is "The Gay Park" so if you are gay it's a place to go. It's in South City which is rife with drugs and prostitutes. There are several gay events held there.

This is the best park in the city. But if you think Forest Park is the best park around, please continue to think so. And go there. This one is in our back yard and we are fine with the masses heading to Forest Park. More for us to enjoy. :)

One of the last Victorian parks in the country. Nice place to relax and also enjoy the sculptures and the gazebos. Great place to picnic especially if you are romantic.
