We stayed at the Casino Queen RV Park and walked over a couple times to view the arch and city. The area is well lite, uncrowded, super clean and has on site security. The pictures you can get are Amazing.

This is my favorite place to take tourists when they visit. First off, they are afraid that it is in East St Louis (it is very safe place) and second, you can't find a better view of our lovely city. There are lovely grounds and...More

Don't want to get too up-close and personal with the arch? Head over to the Illinois side of the river, where you'll find a small park with a perfectly sized lookout platform. Gives a great view of the arch and the surrounding city. Named after...More

This was not here when I last left this area 6 years ago and I was surprised to see how nice it is kept up and how great the view is of the city from it. You can truly take some great pictures from here!...More

This a very nice park to visit. it's located across the river in East St. Louis Il, with a beautiful view of the Arch. It's well kept, you can spend time there and take in the view.

As others have said, this park is well-maintained- great place to get out of the car for a bit, walk and use a restroom. Traveling through, we didn't have time to experience the Arch but at least wanted photos. This was perfect, until I can...More

The reviews on Trip Advisor convinced us to go here. Even though it’s only .3 of a mile from where we were staying (casino’s RV park) there’s construction happening around the casino, so we had to search out someone who could direct us. We eventually...More

I can't believe we haven't been here before!! It has the very, very best view of the Arch and downtown St. Louis around. A very, very nice park with plenty of paved walking paths, an absolutely beautiful 5 story walkway facing across the Mississippi River...More
