The Botanical Heights Neighborhood Association is a resident-based volunteer organization that aims to address the needs of residents and to build and maintain a strong, safe community. To this end, BHNA sponsors events and supports projects that help bring residents together, including National Night Out, the Community Garden and, our newest undertaking, the Playground.
BHNA also serves as liaison to various organizations and officials in the City of
St. Louis, including the Garden District Commission, Park Central Development Corporation, the 17th and 19th Wards, and the 2nd District St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department.
