Nothing compares to standing underneath the giant trees, surrounded by a beautiful park. St. Louis has so much to offer, but perhaps the most influential in my everyday life is the scenery. Coming from a suburb that has a sidewalk and one bike path, I love exploring the parks around school. The one pictured above is called Concordia Park.
Follow the dirt path off of Fontbonne’s campus and it will lead you to this stunning park. At the time I went, spring flowers were blooming. Nature was attempting to shake off the winter blues. The small park has beautiful trees, flowers, and much more. The park is always filled with dogs playing catch, picnics, and people relaxing. All this is happening, but the park makes you feel like it is just you standing underneath the tall trees.
Across the street there is a Kaldi’s Coffee that perfects the mood. Taking a stroll never felt so relaxing with a cup of coffee in your hand and a nice park. Convenient and beautiful, Concordia park happens to be one of my favorite parts of St. Louis.
