Tower Grove

.
St. Louis is fortunate to have a a great deal of park space. Forest Park, the largest urban park in the US, is the famous one. My personal favorite, though, may be
Tower Grove Park. Its 289 acres / 117 hectares has a formal Victorian plan and includes gazebos, open areas and grand, carefully planned woods. It could be the grounds surrounding an English stately home.

It's great. A park like yours is a green lung for a city.

Teeny-tiny tree! I like this lensbaby shot. It's been raining and raining here.....

Great effect - that is a lot of acres.

I think the beautiful green lung is hyperventilating. It looks a little dizzy. Haha. Nice shot, nice effect.

Very cool. Lensbaby here makes it look mysterious and magical. I'm not very familiar with Tower Grove at all.
