Walnut Park

Locale and Topography

Tucked away in the extreme northwest corner of St. Louis is the Walnut Park area, which is bounded on the north by Bellefontaine and Calvary Cemeteries, on the west by the City Limits and on the south and east by the Mark Twain Expressway. Its land generally rises toward the west in a gradual incline with principal drainage being across the rolling topography of the cemeteries toward the river.
