THE JEWEL BOX LILY PONDS

What's new at the Jewel Box Lily Ponds?

The Jewel Box is a St. Louis treasure that residents and guests have enjoyed for decades. The spectacular water gardens certainly contribute to that draw. The St. Louis Water Garden Society is proud to be the caretakers of the lily ponds.

In 2022, the SLWGS installed small plaques near the waterlily ponds to help visitors learn more about what they see happening in the ponds. You can read the most recent posts by clicking the content below.
