I already shared a few photos of our trip to the Lafayette Square neighborhood of St. Louis on my birthday; now I’m going to take a closer look at some of my favorite features of the area.
There are a few historic sites in the park, including a trio of cannons from a British warship which was sunk in the harbor of Charleston during the Revolutionary War. There is a also a bronze casting of a famous statue of George Washington…the only one for which he posed!
The park itself is beautiful…our favorite location was this little area by the Grotto Bridge:
We saw many beautiful flowers in the park, including one of my favorites, the hydrangea:
The park house, which was originally a police station, is also lovely:
The streets surrounding the park are filled with gorgeous homes, some of which still have mounting blocks out front!
And the Lafayette Square Fountain is just down the street!
This is definitely one of my favorite neighborhoods in St. Louis, and I’m looking forward to going back as the seasons change so I can capture more beautiful moments!
