Carondelet Park, Revisited, Part Two

On the western end of Carondelet Park the large lake has a rustic stone bridge separating it into two parts, and fishing is allowed.


The public restrooms have been closed for decades.

The benches have various inscriptions from donors.

This says “Our love remains” in Latin.

I am  giving a lecture on the Flemish Baroque painter Jacob Jordaens today Thursday, November 15, 2018 at 11:00 AM, and reprised tomorrow at 6:00 PM on Friday November 16, 2018 at the Saint Louis Art Museum.


  1. Chris Naffziger;
    A friend of mine from CBC came across your Carondelet Park Photo’s on STL Architecture website recently.

    Who would have thought.

    Donna & I lived in the Holly Hills area for 38 years. We were engaged on the bridge over Horseshoe lake. In 2013 I had the Parks Dept. place a tribute bench by the bridge marking our 45 engagement anniversary at the bridge.
    Very Cool. Tim Hobart
