Reservations for the pavilion last from sunrise to dusk. No parties are approved to stay in the park beyond standard park hours set by the St Louis Park’s Department. The pavilion contains picnic tables to accommodate 75 people and has one electrical outlet. There is no grill at the pavilion. The reservation is ‘as is’ and no further tables or resources will be provided. There are restrooms available at the concession stand nearby.
- Should I be concerned with noise?
Yes, the pavilion is in a highly residential area and the use of amplified sound and/or live music is prohibited. Any use of amplified music will be reported to Park Rangers or Police and the refusal to comply with written regulations will result in the cancellation of the reservation and the party will be asked to leave.
- Where should I park my car?
There is ample street parking along Marquette (which is the Southern border of Tilles Park and is closest to the pavilion) and along the side streets Sulphur and January. Please do not drive cars into the park under any circumstance. Cars in the park will be reported to local police and owners will be ticketed.

The Tilles Park Neighborhood Association is interested in creating a Neighborhood Ownership Plan which is a flexible, community-based approach to reducing crime. We have scheduled a meeting on August 25th at 6:30 p.m. (30 minutes prior to the general meeting) at the Police Officer’s Association (3710 Hampton Ave.). At this meeting, you will be given information about Neighborhood Ownership Plans and we will discuss as a group if this is something we want to consider. I have attached two handouts that contains more detailed information about this topic. Please email us at Tillespark@gmail.com if you are interested in attending the meeting.
In addition, National Night Out (America’s Night Out Against Crime) is coming up on Tuesday, August 4th. National Night Out is a cohesive effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, establish police-community partnerships, and build neighborhood camaraderie among neighbors. In 2014, over 115 blocks across the City of St.Louis participated, hosting potlucks, providing resources for residents, games for young people and fun activities to get neighbors acquainted. It was a huge success. Let’s make 2015 even bigger!
Register your block here:
The deadline for registration is Wednesday, July 22nd.
I look forward to seeing most of you on August 25th and hope many of you can host a block party on August 4th.
