What’s Out There® Weekend St. Louis and the Missouri River Valley will bring to light the unique landscape legacy and local character of the city as reflected by its publicly accessible parks, gardens, plazas, cemeteries, memorials, and neighborhoods. Working in collaboration with Magnificent Missouri and myriad local partners, WOTW St. Louis will engage a large and diverse audiences (typically 1,000+), offering two days of free, expert-led tours of more than two dozen sites that demonstrate the region’s diverse cultural landscape legacy, encouraging participants to discover the little-known design history of places they may pass every day.
