Carriage Pavilion is situated a short distance south of Main Drive, and in the vicinity of the music stand and Concourse Drive. It is provided with hitching posts and well, with a shelter house at the center, and the whole is surrounded by a light wooden fence of ornamental design. Visitors coming to the park on horseback or in carriages, buggies, etc., and desiring to stroll about in the shade while listening to the music, can leave their horses or vehicles at this spot, where they will be safe and out of the way.

Designed in 1873 by Henry Thiele, the Carriage Stand was originally embellished with hitching posts and surrounded by a wooden fence in the "Chinese Chippendale" style utilized near both the Arsenal Street and Magnolia Street entrances to Tower Grove Park. The fence and hitching posts were eventually removed." ~ Tower Grove Park Brocure
