Tower Grove Park is a small municipal park close to downtown St. Louis that sits next to the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Housing 11 Victorian era pavilions, the park is popular among runners, cyclists, walkers, and bird-watchers. This short four mile loop starts just outside the park, along the northern edge and covers the exterior edges and the eastern half of the park, running by the Botanical Gardens. There are many trails crossing the 300 acres of the park for those interested in adding mileage. Enjoy a walk in the Botanical Garden as part of this run.
There’s a cool neighborhood centered on 39th St., which leads to Tower Grove Park. Park-run then back past the Missouri Botanical garden. Loop back through 39th.
Add-On: Forest Park is 1.5 miles north. Use Tower Grove Ave.
