I have been back through here many times, but actually got married here back in 1990. It's a lovely space to bring a lunch and find a nice place and "cop a squat" and sit quietly. View changes with every turn.

Larger than Central Park in NYC! This park has everything when you take the time to explore it ALL. as a resident of StL for 15 years I am still amazed by the nooks/crannies I find in this beautiful park. 2 gold courses, paved and stone trails, Zoo, the Muny, Art Museum, History Museum, pavilions, ball diamonds, soccer fields, Tennis...

We spent a day in the park and had a great time. The park is huge and gets quite crowded on the weekends so plan accordingly. There is an air conditioned shuttle bus that runs every 20 minutes. Hop on/off as much as you want for $2. Most of the attractions are free. We visited the Science Center and Planetarium... More

What a beautiful park! The World's Fair Pavilion is beautiful and has a great view. The Boathouse offers paddle boat rentals. We got lucky with a fairly mild evening in July.

This sprawling park, which seemed like a little city itself, had something for everyone: zoo, museums, playground, rink, botanical garden, outdoor theatre, etc.; so much I couldn't possibly name it all or experience all in a short visit. There was a racquet ball court, trails for walking, biking, running. One side of the part borders a neighborhood of old mansion... More

Wish we'd known more about the park before we went - would definitely have planned at least a full day, if not more, there. Who would have guessed there was so much in one place? Beautiful grounds, gardens, museums, amphitheaters, cafes, walking and hiking paths, etc. Just an amazing oasis in the middle of a big city.

We headed toward Forest Park between a lunch gathering and the Cardinals game hoping to spend some time at the zoo but there was no parking. I've never been to the Jewel Box so we stopped there to see what was there. Admission is $1 per person but there's not really anything to see. A few plants during the summer... More

While in St. Louis to see my Physician, I wanted my friend to see Forest Park and all the exquisite architectural structures contained therein. He visited the Art Museum while I was at my Doctor's appointment and he didn't make it through 1/3 of the exhibits due to the extensive collections and his utter immersion in taking in each and...
