This historic neighborhood is host to the second leg of the Staenberg Group Gateway Cup — Tour de Francis Park! Francis Park, named after David Rowland Francis — President of the Louisiana Purchase Exposition in 1889, is known for its wide, tree lined streets and for having beautiful churches on every corner. Today the St. Louis Hills neighborhood showcases gingerbread bungalows, stately homes and some of the tidiest landscaping in St. Louis. Home to St. Louis cultural and iconic Ted Drewes—our homegrown ice cream oasis. We hope you enjoy the second stop on this Gateway Cup weekend! It is quickly becoming a Staenberg Group Gateway Cup staple. St. Louis Hills will be serving up delicious food and cold beverages until 6:00 p.m. Dig in!
Racer parking will be at Bishop DuBourg High school, 5850 Eichelberger St.
