I am never let down by this large, beautiful park that encompasses so much St. Louis tourism and tradition. Walking, jogging, and biking paths/trails, historic buildings, gorgeous scenery, and several attractions: St. Louis Zoo, Science Center, Missouri History Museum, Boat House (restaurant and paddleboat rentals), Art Museum, Jewel Box (indoor and outdoor garden), The Muny (outdoor musical theater), etc. A...

We were staying across the street in the Chase Park Plaza Hotel. It was a great place to let the kids run around and play some soccer. Many other sites to visit within the park also.

Central Park may get a lot of attention, but Forest Park is nearly 4 times as large and offers much more for families, couples and everyone else. With museums to the zoo, the science center, an outdoor ice rink, the jewel box, the muny, walking trails and so much more, Forest Park is one of the best places in all... More

St Louis really was thoughtful be setting up this park. It adds so much to their city. We only had time to walk around and visit the zoo (which is free and very good).

We come here every year, sometimes more than once. It is quite nice, perfect to bring your entire family especially those who live far away from you. Take them here for a lovely afternoon and evening. Lots to see and do.

The restaurants are wonderful, with great views and reasonable prices. The walking and biking paths are well maintained. (Why are their so many walkers on the bike paths?) The art museum is first class.

I love this place! It is like a little piece of heaven; many little pieces that take only a short walk to discover a new piece. Before the Forest Park Forever master plan improvements, Forest Park had been a rather tattered remnant of the glorious 1904 World's Fair -- containing the St Louis Art Museum on Art Hill overlooking the...

Forest Park is a beautiful park with a great zoo, play grounds, paddle boats and so much more. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the St. Louis area.

This is the most beautiful park and has so much to do. From the World's Fair buildings to the Boat House with boat rides to the fantastic St. Louis FREE zoo, the day is special and memorable no matter how many times you go there and we've been going for years.

Forest Park is a massive lovely park, and home to the St. Louis Zoo, the Science Center, the Art Museum, the History Museum, and the Muni Museum (an outdoor musical theater). The park also has a lovely lake near the center, and has beautiful views. Definitely not to be missed.
