Tower Grove Park is the perfect place to visit on warm, sunny days with kids. Home to playgrounds, wading pools, horseshoes, tennis, walking and biking paths, ball fields, carriage rides and more, there is something for everyone to do outdoors. The park regularly hosts events that get the community together. It is a historic park on the list of National Historic Landmarks, which dates back to 1868, and is also home to historic structures, such as the Ruin/Fountain Pond, the Water Lilies area, statue of William Shakespeare, Christopher Columbus and more. The park is open year-round.
