Bellerive Park

Overview and amenities for Bellerive Park

Bellerive pavilion
Bellerive pavilion by Mark Groth

Originally known as Riverside Park, it was later renamed Bellerive Park in honor of the early French governor of Saint Louis. It was purchased as a terminus for Bellerive Boulevard and to provide a scenic viewpoint for a fine riverscape vista.

Sweeping views of the river heading southwards are really stunning. Nearly every bench faces out towards the Mighty Mississippi. The pavilion has a beautiful scenic overlook.

There is a crescent drive that is accessible from Broadway, leads up to the grand pavilion and then to the bridge crossing over Broadway.

There are no bike racks available.
