 Things to Do: Mother's Day at the Jewel Box
By: Editor (Source: City of St. Louis Parks Dept)
Fri, May 12th, 2006 7:41 am

This blog post is dedicated to all the folks trying to find something nice to do for dear old Mom this Mother's Day.

One of Kimberly's favorite things to do is attend the Art Fair at Laumeier Sculpture Park in Sunset Hills (assuming it's not raining).  But I think I've already blogged that in years past, so here's something unique (and new for the blog).

From the City of St. Louis Parks Dept press release...

The annual Mother's Day Hydrangea Show is open at the Jewel Box in Forest Park.  The Jewel Box will be open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 14, so families can visit and take photos surrounded by the beautiful flowers.

The Jewel Box is open: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday; 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $1 but it is free from 9 a.m. to noon on Monday and Tuesday.

The permanent floral displays are supplemented with seasonal flowers from the city’s greenhouses grown and planted by the Flora Conservancy of Forest Park, the volunteer gardening group, and the Horticulture Section of the Parks Division.

The $3.5 million renovation of the Jewel Box included air-conditioning so visitors can view the flower shows in the summer in a climate-controlled environment.

The Jewel Box was built by the City of St. Louis in 1936 and is operated by the Department of Parks, Recreation and Forestry. It is listed on the National Historic Register.

(The Jewel Box is located on Wells and McKinley drives in Forest Park.)
