So much to see and do, so little time! Forest Park was the site of the 1904 World's Fair! Many of the structures are still there and are magnificent! World Class St. Louis Zoo, Theater, Art Museum, Science Center, golf course, running, bike paths, snow sledding hills, fountains, small lakes all compete for your attention. Simply a marvelous, multipurpose piece... More

When there's a snow fall head to where the locals go for tons of sledding fun. In front of the Art Museum there is a great wide hill that's superb for sledding. There are hay bales at the button to stop you so no chance of going into the frozen lake. Everyone is usually pretty attentive to watch for uncontrolled... More

This is a beautiful park in downtown St Louis, MO. There is the science center, museum, butterfly house etc and plenty of room to ride bikes, jog, lay on blanket, pick nick or anything you desire. Never eaten at the restaurant on the lake but have heard good things from friends.

I love Forest Park! An excellent place to exercise, picnic, walking, site seeing, and just walking. Please visit the Art Museum, History Museum, Skate King, The Forest Park Zoo and other sites. The restaurant in the History Museum offers great meals especially breakfast.

I know Parks - I live close to Richmond Park on the west side of London. Forest Park is smaller (Richmond is 2360 acres) and less wild but no less wonderful. It's a far more tamed park - beautifully kept, with a staggering number of attractions, many dating back to the World's Fair of 1904. The St Louis Art Museum... More

This is a living breathing park and vibrant neighborhood. It is the heart of the city and very obviously appreciated and used by the locals. More cities in America should have areas like this.

There is so much to do in the park, but beside the attractions the grounds are beautiful. Cant wait for the spring when all of the flowers will be in bloom!
