Tower Grove Park

Tower Grove Park is known for its unique, historic Victorian architecture, its extensive network of trails, and its signature community events and activities such as the Farmer’s Market and the Festival of Nations.  However, one of the main attractions for our 2.5 million annual visitors is the 289 acres of green open spaces and woodlands that serve as a natural oasis in the middle of a densely populated, diverse urban area.  The living landscape of Tower Grove Park includes 6,900 trees, hundreds of varieties of woody shrubs, stunning horticulture, and many acres of grassy turf in which Park visitors can relax, socialize, exercise, study, and enjoy nature.

Tower Grove Park operates with our core values in mind: accountability, stewardship, teamwork, welcoming, leader and fun. We encourage all of our employees to strive to fulfill these core values to create the best possible experience for our guests.
