Turtle Park


This delightful little playground is home to several large concrete turtle sculptures.


If you're ever in St. Louis, be sure to stop by.
I guarantee kids (and parents) will burn off a lot of energy
scrambling around on the turtle's backs. 



These pictures were taken several years ago, and bring back wonderful memories.

    1. I always feel so sad for people who lose all their photos in a fire or tornado. We had a great time at this little park. Simple things are sometimes the most fun of all.

    1. It really is a nice spot to run and play with children or grandchildren for an hour or two. And with the zoo right across the street, it's even more perfect.

    1. Next time you head that direction, you'll have to stop and see. I had a pet turtle when I was a girl, so I thought this was a super duper playground!
