Tower Grove Park was founded in 1868 to create a green space in the center of St. Louis’ most densely populated neighborhoods. The Friends of Tower Grove Park was formed to provide volunteer and fundraising support for the park. Over the years, confusion arose regarding the missions of the two organizations, and both organizations decided it was time to consider a merger. Lodestar provided a challenge grant to support the cost of a facilitator to explore the option.
