About Us

Mission Statement

The mission of Tower Grove Park is to be an exemplary, well-preserved and well-presented, wooded Victorian park of international significance that provides important recreational, educational and cultural opportunities for the public in a way that is compatible with its unique and historic character.

Description

Tower Grove Park is a public park and arboretum maintained, operated, and programmed by an independent Board of Commissioners and staff. The Board of Commissioners receive support from private donations, grants, rental fees, the Friends of Tower Grove Park, and the city of St. Louis. The Tower Grove Park staff is the only provider of maintenance for the Park.

Tower Grove Park’s landscape of grassy meadows, approximately seven thousand trees and many varied flowerbeds make the park an important urban green space. The Park is a premier urban and historical destination, and is maintained through an annual park maintenance program, an urban forest renewal program, and an array of free and low-cost educational, recreational, cultural and social opportunities for schools, neighboring communities, and the St. Louis region.
