Benton Park Neighborhood Association (BPNA)
The BPNA, a volunteer-based non-profit organization, provides and promotes programs, services and activities aimed at encouraging connections between neighbors and fostering civic involvement in our diverse community.
Located in the city, just across I-55 from Anheuser-Busch, 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 had earned the distinction as the largest historic district in St. Louis when the Landmarks completed a voluminous nomination into the National Register.
Benton Park residences include creatives, professionals, 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.
We are a nonprofit, 501(c)(3), thus, any donation to the BPNA is tax-deductible!
