This place is so huge and beautiful. Recommend the park trolley for getting around. It's a small price that you can use all day long. We were there on a weekend so the park was very very crowded. Visitors should go to the visitor center and park there for free and use the trolley for getting around. Otherwise get ready... More

The park is amazing and the most amazing part is that most everything is free. It is also very clean and sport friendly.

Briefly walked through the park as we found free parking for the St. Louis Zoo throughout. Saw many people jogging, walking dogs. Looked like a college photography class exploring. Nice park.

This park, which contains the Art Museum. the Science center and planetarium, the muni, the zoo and three golf courses in about 1,200 acres is something you really shouldn't miss. Read about it online, but take my word for it, the descriptions on line do not do it justice.

This was definitely the hidden gem I was not expecting to encounter during my visit to St. Louis. At the time of my trip to Forest Park, it was perhaps the coldest, most frigid day of the year. The wind was unbearable, however, the history surrounding this outdoor spectacle cannot be overemphasized. I had no idea that the 1904 Summer... More

This big and beautiful park is such an asset to the people of St. Louis! It is perfect for strolling, relaxing and reading or jogging through. It's a great get away for students at SLU or Wash U!

We have visited the zoo, the are museum, the Muny, and the World's Fair location. Always something to see. It took a few years to see it all on our visits to see family in St Louis. I would live in Forest Park if I could!

Park at the boathouse walk past the worlds fair pavilion towards the zoo Go up the hill to the St. Louis art museum and look out over the basin Best bet is sunset to watch the beautiful view across Art Hill Such a gorgeous place

There is so much to do here! This weekend they had a big celebration of the 1904 World's Fair. I just wish they had more signs and parking areas.
