This is just one of the many reasons why I love Saint Louis so much. Lafayette Square has so much to offer when it comes to dining: SqWires, Vin de Set, Baileys' Chocolate Bar, 1111 Mississippi, Square One Brewery :and it is set in the midst of a gorgeous historical district. One day I found this awesome playground tucked into the middle of the park in the very center of Lafayette Square. There is actually another playground right behind this colorful one that is geared toward older children. It's a really peaceful place to play and a nice change from all the regular playgrounds we frequent.
