The Pavillions Of Tower Grove Park

Tower Grove Park Pavilions 1

Tower Grove Park has eleven (I think) pavilions for the public's use. Families and groups can reserve them for any kind of get together. Many of them were built during the 1870's. They all have different designs.

This is the start of what I hope will be a series of posts about each of them. The Chinese Pavilion is a bit of a fantasy but not all that different from the style we saw years ago at the Summer Palace outside of Beijing.

So much detail for the roof only. Beautiful.

I had no idea these pavilions existed in Tower Grove Park--and my son's school was next to the park....

Very nice. And I like the shadows.

You should get a few photos during the Summer when there's more people here.
