Originally developed as a private Park for residents of the Clifton Heights subdivision, the tract was conveyed to the City. Eventually, the City bought adjoining property, enlarging the Park to its present size.

This park has arguably the most unique topography in all of the city. It is in low lying land that looks up to the surrounding homes. The unconventional winding streets are not common for St. Louis where the rectilinear street grid rules in most of the city.

The charming lake with ducks, geese, two fountains, a viewing deck and "boat house" all make up quite a beautiful scene in Clifton Heights Park.
