Had a chance to check out the proposed improvements for pedestrian connectivity to Tower Grove Park. This kind of thought and energy would have been unthinkable 20 years ago. We, as a city, are starting to think and invest in the right ways.
Between June, 2013 and October, 2014 I blogged on all 108 St. Louis parks. As part of that project, I chose not to include Tower Grove Park since it's technically not a city park.
But it would be wrong not to cover it here for completeness sake. And, since I moved to this part of the city nearly six years ago, I've really taken to this park. Driving by the perimeter or within the interior just doesn't do the park justice. This is one of the best walking parks in the city. You have to experience it at a slower pace if you want to take in the full ~289 acres.
