Bill and I have lived in the shadow of Tower Grove Park for about ten years now. TGP is an often overlooked and unappreciated tresure in the city of St. Louis. Not quite as large or boastful as the more showy Forest Park, TGP was created in 1868 when Henry Shaw gifted this land to the City of St. Louis. We've spent a great deal of time in TGP over the last ten years--walking our dog Grover, riding bikes, attending various festivals, shopping at the TGP Farmer's Market, and wading in the fountain water with our daughter Willa. In fact, we loved TGP so much that we got married at the Piper Palm House (pictured below). If you have the time, you should check out the park. If not, here are some highlights from the short walk we took through Tower Grove Park.
