Boulevard Heights is the best of both worlds: easy city access with suburban charm. Formerly the site of city greenhouses, Boulevard Heights is an up-and coming neighborhood with room to grow. It has a mix architecture styles from gingerbread-style cottages to large homes with turrets. And with newly constructed town homes and condos and development of new single-family homes, there is a porch for almost everyone.
Not only is it one of the most popular neighborhoods in St. Louis city, it’s also one of the safest. Many of the city’s police officers and fire fighters are residents of this area.
The Boulevard Heights Improvement Association was founded in 1933 and is one of the oldest active neighborhood associations in the city.

PARKS & REC
Passing through the neighborhood is the River Des Peres Greenway, a part of the Great Rivers Greenway trail. Once a boring stretch of unused land, the Greenway is now a trail flanked by trees and often filled with bikers, dog walkers and joggers. The trail connects to the one-street Bike St. Louis system at Lansdowne MetroLink station and to the Christy Greenway trail that extends one mile from Germania Avenue to Holly Hills Boulevard.
On the northern edge of the neighborhood sits the large and beautiful Carondelet Park. With the addition of new jogging trails, it has become the destination for walkers and runners.
