Came with our own lunch and popped a squat right on the lawn. Next time we need to try the nearby Tower Park, as well. They have lunch trucks with , from what I have heard, great food!

I couldn't believe it but Forest Park is bigger than Central Park! It is very clean, and quite beautiful. Not to mention the Zoo is free to visit and my kids just love walking in the Zoo, A great place to visit year-round.

We love bringing our family here. Every year our entire family gets together a couple times and this is the place we do it. Plenty of space for everyone and the kids love it. We hope to continue coming here for years to come.

With multiple museums, trails, 2 golf courses, game fields (even a cricket pitch). You could easily spend multiple days here and not see eveything

Who couldn't love Forest Park? There is something for anyone: The Zoo, the Art Museum, Boating in the Lagoon, the Golf Courses, the History Museum, 3 free standing places to get a bite to eat, a good bite at affordable prices. Or just a great place to stroll and enjoy the outdoors.

This is a beautiful place to spend the day with the family. There are mature trees, restaurants, paddle boats, a zoo, and even a science center all within a walk through the park. And all for free! What a incredible gem for the city!

Drove through the park a couple times exploring all the various options and sights - on a cold January Saturday. What a wonderful treasure for the St. Louis community - two golf courses, so many walking paths, biking options, boating, an outdoor performance stage along with both Art and History museums. Great place to spend a spring, summer or fall... More
