The Missouri Botanical Gardens is one of the city's greatest treasures. Its rich history is fascinating, and the expansive grounds are a joy to roam year-round.
Incredible garden with a world class research presence. Japanese Garden is not to be missed, nor is the tropical rainforest housed under a gigantic geodesic dome.
You are only one block from this incredibly beautiful park. Bring your camera and see all that you can. Lots of cool events in here throughout the year and an epic playground for the kiddos.
It is beautiful and peaceful. I love the children's area for the kids. They do a great holiday light tour too!
