Join us for a walk in the Jewel Box in Forest Park through their annual Poinsettia Show. The art deco-styled greenhouse will be beautifully adorned with Poinsettias in every color. This colorful walk is not to be missed!
More about the Jewel Box: The Jewel Box, located on a 17-acre site in Forest Park, was built by the City of St. Louis in 1936 and is operated by the Department of Parks, Recreation, and Forestry. It is listed on the National Historic Register. The permanent floral displays are supplemented with seasonal flowers from the city’s greenhouses grown and planted by the Flora Conservancy of Forest Park, the volunteer gardening group, and the Horticulture Section of the Parks Division.
Optional add-in: After touring the Poinsettia Show at the Jewel Box, walkers will stop in at the Boat House in Forest Park for lunch before returning to the MetroLink Station for the ride home. Walkers are responsible for the cost of their own meal and any gratuity associated with dining.
