Living in Benton Park

Welcome to our Neighborhood!

Our neighbors are artists, accountants, small mom and pop shops as well as large businesses, growing families, singles and retirees. We'd like to show you around the neighborhood-a virtual tour of sorts-to show you what makes us unique in St. Louis city.

Perhaps it's the combination of new and old that sets Benton Park apart. It is not uncommon to see 100 year old or older homes as well as 50's bungalows and brand-new construction on the same street. Our neighborhood boasts picturesque parks and restaurants winning rave reviews.

Benton Park is city living at its best, just five minutes from the Gateway Arch and the rest of downtown St. Louis. Just a quick trip from the city's cultural venues such as Powell Hall, The Fox Theatre, St. Louis University, Washington University and others.
