Visitation Park is a small neighborhood nestled southeast of the West End neighborhood, just north of DeBaliviere Place.[2]

The Visitation Park neighborhood is named for the Visitation Academy of St. Louis, which was located at the southeast corner of Cabanne Avenue and Belt Avenue from 1892 to 1962. The Visitation Academy was razed in 1962 and the site became Visitation Park. In 1989, the park was renamed to Ivory Perry Park[3].
