Francis Park is at the heart of the St. Louis Hills neighborhood. It is a 60.3 acre park that has tennis, handball, picnic areas, playground and soccer & softball areas. There is a 1.2 mile paved path that goes around the park perimeter along with paved areas in the park.
Directions: Francis Park only has street-side parking. A good meeting spot is at the walk-in park entrance in the middle of the block along Nottingham Avenue. This location is just west of where Childress Avenue meets Nottingham Avenue. If you can’t find parking along Nottingham Avenue, depending on the time of day, parking may be available at the parking lot at the Nottingham School (at Donovan Avenue and Nottingham) or Gabriel the Archangel Catholic Church (at Tamm and Nottingham).
