Mission Statement

The BPNA is a 501c. It provides and promotes programs, services and activities aimed at encouraging connections between neighbors and fostering civic involvement in our diverse community.

Description

The Benton Park Neighborhood is named after St. Louis Missouri's second oldest park. From its beginnings as early as 1836 with the sale of the St. Louis Commons until today, this neighborhood has maintained a prominent place in the city's heritage.

With Benton Park's age and architecture, in 1985 it earned the distinction as the largest historic district in St. Louis when the Landmarks completed a voluminous nomination into the National Register.

Benton Park is now home to a diverse group of residents, spanning from artists to accountants, small businesses, growing families, singles and retirees. Our volunteer-based neighborhood association, the Benton Park Neighborhood Association (BPNA), works to sustain an informed and active electorate, sound planning, and responsive government that serves the residents and businesses of the Benton Park neighborhood.

Would you recommend Benton Park Neighborhood Association 501C?

I have been writing stories about Benton Park and the work done by the association for some time on YourLocalMessenger.com and I have attended many of their meetings. They are a great group of people working hard to make their neighborhood a great place to live.

Historic St Louis neighborhood of friendly, creative people. Fun concerts in the park with great bands, live art performances, an area for kids to paint, and Taste of Benton Park.
