It’s a new year but the coronavirus is still around. If you’ve begun to feel the effects of cabin fever, we have compiled a list of natural parks around St. Louis for you. Parks are a great way to get out of the house during the pandemic. They are outdoor and there’s plenty of room for people to spread out.
Missouri Botanical Garden
The Missouri Botanical Garden is home to a wide range of beautiful plants and fountains. They are currently open and allowing admission from 9-5. If you are worried about the weather, you should check out the Climatron®. This domed greenhouse is meant to imitate the weather of a rain forest so you can enjoy tropical plants and warmth even in the winter!

Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park
The Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park seems like it has it all. It’s got hiking trails, a large river, and amenities for the whole family. There is plenty to see and do at this park if you need a break from your at-home office!
Laumeier Sculpture Park
The Laumeier Sculpture Park is an outdoor museum that is home to 60 sculptures. Get outside for some fresh air while also taking in some amazing and funky sights! This park is open from 8 am to 30 minutes before sunset. If you’re looking for even more excitement, they are currently hosting a limited selection of classes and workshops. Check out what they have available here: https://www.laumeiersculpturepark.org/calendar?view=calendar&month=01-2021
Compton Hill Reservoir Park
If historical sites interest you we suggest checking out Compton Hill Reservoir Park. It’s a beautiful historical landmark that is interesting enough during the day. However, they do occasionally host full moon viewings. Be sure to check their calendar for future events! http://watertowerfoundation.org/events/
