The Jewel Box is beautiful place for a family picture during any season. When we were there, several families were taking turns to get their Christmas pictures. The charge is nominal charge to pay for the upkeep. Great place

Great open spaces and a host of things to do. Be sure to visit if in St. Louis. We visited the zoo and history museum and walked around, even on a very cold day.

This park is beautiful and huge! We took our dogs walking around this park several times while we were in the city on vacation. There's lots to see including the City Museum and the Zoo which are within the park.
