Tiny Treasures - St. Louis

The gardens are tended by volunteers
is a small display greenhouse in Forest Park.  In the wealth of treasures in Forest Park – the art museum, the zoo and more - it is easy to miss and well worth a quick visit.  Outside is a charming water garden with water lilies and a fountain.  The Jewel Box is a small greenhouse, only 55’ X 144’, but with a 50’ high ceiling and glass walls.  The space is light, airy and filled with ferns, plants and flowers.  It is now used for weddings and special floral shows.  It is the kind of place that makes young children imagine monkeys peeping down at them from the tropical trees.  Admission is $1.
