We stayed at an airBNB in this area of St Louis and we loved its classic character and architecture. Love all the different doors and colorful buildings. The park is beautiful and the square itself is surrounded by various restaurants and coffee shops.

I was there last week with my granddaughter, daughter & son in law. It was a fun time watching them play together. I love the fact that there is so much natural beauty in such a small park.

Nice little park to walk off dinner or stop off for a drink or dessert. Nice close to a day in St. Louis.
