Tower Grove Park Director To Step Down, Says Building On Park’s Legacy Won’t End
After 27 years, John Karel, the director of Tower Grove Park is stepping down.
Karel says during his time as director he always worked to restore, maintain and improve the park. The next person will still have a lot to do to maintain the city’s second largest park.
“I think the most important thing that has happened at Tower Grove Park has been the recognition by the people who’ve known it and love it, how important it is and how important it is to restore the park to its proper position of excellence,” he said. “So it can serve as it always was intended to serve, as a major asset for the broader community of St. Louis.”
