Welcome to Holly Hills!
Founded in 1927, Holly Hills is one of the premier neighborhoods in St. Louis. Our neighborhood can sometimes seem like a small town. Neighbors know and look out for one and other. Many residents have lived in the neighborhood their entire lives. Kids who move away from Holly Hills as adults often come back when they start a family.
Holly Hills is also a vibrant city neighborhood that welcomes new residents. Singles who want to take advantage of the restaurants and an active lifestyle, young families who find just the right house (and it’s close to a park!), empty nesters who want to downsize to restored bungalows and be closer to city’s restaurants, cultural institutions, and sports venues all call Holly Hills home.
Throughout the year in Carondelet Park you will find runners and walkers on the paved path, competitive cyclists on the park’s curving roads, music lovers listening to a summer concert, people playing horseshoes or fishing in one of two lakes and children playing on the playground. You’ll see birdwatchers, picnickers, and swimmers (in the outdoor pool at the Rec Plex). Holly Hills Grills, our signature event, takes place in the fall, quickly followed by the Pumpkin Parade and Trick or Treat Street on Halloween. Whew! So much to do!
There are so many ways to become involved and help us make Holly Hills an even better place to be. Tutor a child, participate in a park clean-up, volunteer to help plant and maintain our flower beds, donate food from your bed in the community garden, and of course join the Holly Hills Improvement Association!
You’ll see new faces and old friends at our bi-monthly HHIA neighborhood meetings. You’ll hear directly from our elected officials, listen to reports from the police and fire departments, and guest speakers discussing timely, informative and entertaining topics.
Meetings are generally held on the fourth Monday of odd months (January, March, May, September and November), starting at 7 p.m. at the Carondelet Park Rec Plex. (Check the schedule on the website – hollyhills.info – or elsewhere in this directory for exact dates.)
With this directory, we hope to give you snapshot of the many wonderful amenities in Holly Hills.
Whether you’re a resident or just passing through, welcome to Holly Hills!
