#69: Lafayette Park

  • Named after Frenchman Marques de Lafayette, who was a volunteer under George Washington in the American Revolution.
  • St. Louis' oldest park; founded in 1838
  • Also known to be one of the oldest parks west of the Mississippi River.
  • Park consists of walking/jogging trails, a duck pond, playground and a gazebo for special events
  • There are at least six other U.S. cities that have a Lafayette Park, including Washington, DC and San Francisco.

And now, the colorful cake, as done by multi-cake artist Megan Rieke:

The park is surrounded by Lafayette Square, which was given its own cake in late June (a month after I got this one).
