The things you can do / see in this park, adjacent to the STL Zoo are endless! Very nicely thought-out outdoor space. You can bike, run, walk, fly kites, ride a paddleboat, kayak, have a picnic, etc. One of the nicest outdoor spaces/parks I've seen in numerous cities.

Lovely place, with a variety of activities for all ages. A friend drove us all around the park, pointing out the three golf courses, tennis facilities, butterfly house, and other facilities before dropping us off at the St. Louis Art Museum, where we spent the afternoon.

Forest Park is a great place to but if the Muny Opera is still operating it is a must. Sitting under the stars listening to the most current musical is a wonderful experience. Don't forget to take bug spray

This place is phenomenal. You would never know you are in St. Louis when traveling through this gem of a place. Beautiful, well landscaped, lots to do and great signage. Will definitely return :)

I live near the Park, so I use it as a haven, strolling the many areas of beautifully maintained grounds. Through spring, summer, and early autumn, water features are everywhere, egrets grace the shallow ponds, a songbird chorus throughout all the wooded areas, ducks and geese abound, as well as the occasional reclusive raccoon. Aside from the many facilities scattered... More

I was in town staying at the Four Seasons St. Louis and the Concierge recommended visiting Forest Park. Luckily I went on the perfect day as it was sunny and unseasonably warm (March). It was a $30 cab fare each way to get here from my hotel which I wasn't a fan of but it was a fun day. There... More

If you haven't been in years, you should go back. Much hard work has repaired areas, planted new trees and done amazing gardening. Forest Park contains the STL Zoo, STL art Museum, golf, History museum, MUNY Opera, Jewel Box, Planaterium, etc...and in JUNE: The Shakespeare Festival. Zoo and Art museum open all year round almost every day.
