Garden-Spink Pavilion

Original stone gatehouse entrance of the Garden


Spink Pavilion has gone through a total renovation that was finished in April of 2010. The renovations include new modern restrooms, and reception area. New floor-to-ceiling clear span glass windows have replaced the old mullion style windows and doors. New HVAC system has been installed insuring comfortable room temperatures all year long. A permanent awning was added over the terrace for inclement weather. New lighting was added in the interior and exterior of the building. A new sophisticated sound system has been installed. These and many other changes have totally transformed this space into one of the most sought after event spaces in St Louis.

Spink Pavilion, originally known as the Flora Gate, was built by Henry Shaw to serve as the main entrance to the Garden. This beautifully restored pavilion is situated on the grand plaza overlooking the three large reflecting lily pools, The Milles Sculpture Garden and the world renowned Climatron. Display beds along all sides of the lily pools brighten the area with flowers, including tulips, pansies, and unusual summer annuals. The Spink Pavilion is a perfect setting for all types of special events…all year long.
