One of the great things about STL Forest Park is that they have kept many attractions such as the zoo and museums free of charge. The park itself is huge and it always clean. I bike there frequently by myself and feel completely safe.

I was very surprised by how large this park was! The Art Institute of St. Louis and many other points of interest/musuems are located in the park. It is very-well maintained, pretty, and great place to check out in St. Louis.

Lots of history in this park and it's beautiful. You could spend all day reading about the history of the World Fair in this park or you could spend all day enjoying the many paths, gardens, and fountains.

Forest Park is one of my favorite places in St. Louis. From the world famous zoo to the science center, outdoor skating rink to the art museum and so much more, the park has some of STL's best attractions. It is also almost 4 times the size of Central Park in New York and has amazing walking trails, an outdoor... More

This trip to St. Louis was a day trip for us. When we made our visit, I was slightly misinformed by the guy at the Visitor's Center that this entire place was free. I think what he meant to say was that it is free to enter the park, but everything else costs outside of the art museum. Needless to... More

Lots to explore and fun. I broke the pedometer scale on my app visiting Forest Park and loved it. The zoo is free, and the views from The World's Fair Pavilion are worth checking out.

The zoo is great and free admission. Some activities are a small charge inside. The sting ray exhibit is seasonal and wonderful. Don't miss the walk-up exhibits for the hippos, elephants, sea lions and orangutans...can be very comical! Eat at the boathouse and take a paddleboat ride for a break. Great biking paths as well. Enjoy the muny in the... More
