St. Louis’ Lindenwood Park is a popular area nestled between larger commercial arteries like Arsenal, Hampton and Chippewa with Watson cutting southwest through the neighborhood. It offers every kind of “walkability” you could want.

Neighborhood Feel

Lindenwood Park has a small-town atmosphere. The neighborhood hosts Trivia Nights, Lawn and Garden Contests, Movies in the Park, LinFest-Lindenwood Neighborhood Fall Festival and has a community garden. There is an active neighborhood association and within the neighborhood boundaries you can find everything from auto repair, chiropractic services, schools, churches, restaurants and yoga studios. Combine all that with a central location, easy commute to downtown or Clayton (easy access to the Landsdowne metrolink station) and this neighborhood is a win for anyone wanting walkable lifestyle and easy access to the rest of the city.

Lindenwood Park Amenities

Dozens of restaurants – everything from sandwich and coffee shops to high-end dining, are locally owned, which lends to the small-town feel and appeals to many Lindenwood Park residents. Besides the namesake Lindenwood Park, Francis and Tilles are also nearby. Several schools are within the neighborhood. The map below highlights some of the more popular amenities of Lindenwood Park.
