Best Picnic Spot

Art Hill

What with the Shakespeare Festival in the spring, fireworks and film series in the summer and the symphony concerts in the fall, there are plenty of picnic-perfect events scheduled on or near Art Hill throughout the year. Shove off in a paddle boat from the Boathouse, and take it all in from the water. Or simply sprawl on a blanket beneath the iconic statue of King Louis IX, watch the clouds pass overhead and admire the view of the park above the treetops, the beautiful fountains and Post-Dispatch Lake. Even in winter, a thermos full of hot chocolate and cookies is the perfect refuel for a day of coasting down what is also one of the best sledding spots in town.
