One of the great blessings of the St Louis area is a pleathora of parks that continues to grow and develop due to the popularity of these places and their use by the surrounding communities. It has been said that the concept of setting aside natural landscapes for the pleasure and use of the general public began when New York when Central Park was created in 1853, or when Abraham Lincoln set aside land in the Yosemite Grant, but years earlier, the oldest park in St. Louis was set aside in 1836, then established by ordinance when the City of St Louis established Lafayette Square Park. Ever since then, great effort and charity has existed in the St Louis area by the creation and maintenance of some of our wonderful park land and public spaces. In 1876, Forest Park was founded and shortly afterwars, the 1904 Worlds Fair and 1904 Summer Olympics brought the park into worldwide attention. This page includes links to just a few of the better known parks in the area.
Owning homes in St. Louis within close proximity to one of these, or any other parks, is highly desireable, as proximity to recreational activities that parks provide benefits health, reduces stress, and increases real estate values. Enough said
