One of the nice things about driving into St. Louis for choir rehearsal after church on Sundays is that I get to visit some places I otherwise normally wouldn’t. Today I took a walk around Tower Grove Park, and as is always the case in spring, it was love at first sight!
Yesterday evening, Chickadee and I took a walk around Tower Grove Park. Like it’s next-door neighbor, the Missouri Botanical Garden, as well as Forest Park, we saw lots of tulips in bloom and many flowering trees. This setting is rather unique because of the faux ruins that are one of the central decorative features of the park. In addition to the many gazebos and pavilions, there are also other beautiful buildings on the property, too, as we really enjoyed our stroll!
We’re blessed to have many beautiful parks in the St. Louis area. I’ve talked a lot about the largest of them, Forest Park, many times, but the second largest, Tower Grove Park, is also gorgeous. It has many beautiful and unique pavilions, statues, a greenhouse, and a private residence (which at least at one time was the home of the park Superintendent), on the property.
This was the first time that I’ve walked around Tower Grove Park in the fall, and I certainly wasn’t disappointed. From the beautiful colors on the trees to the carpets of leaves on the ground, it was an autumnal paradise!
