This is a great addition to St Louis. It was my first time going there and you have so much to see and do. The zoo, art and history museums, many trails are just a few of the items you will find. You can spend an entire day just going from place to place. It is a must see if... More

Well worth a visit for groups of any age. Many different attractions and museums. There is something for everyone. A trolley is available for transport between areas. Free parking and free admission to most place. Very scenic surrounding and would highly recommend.

As other reviews will share, there are many, many options within Forest Park. The Zoo, History Museum, Art Museum, biking / walking trails, golf courses, Muny Opera, Science Center, paddle boats, Segway tour, bike rentals and restaurants are just a sample. The most interesting component of Forest Park, however, is the various donor groups and Boards of Directors that make... More

I went to the Muny to see Holiday Inn. As we were walking back to the car, I noticed how beautifully landscaped the area was in Forest Park. I also attended a concert at the Zoo on Friday night and then saw Back to the Future on a giant screen across the street from the Art Museum. The grounds were... More

This trip begins with a tram ride allowing you to get on and off at different points at the park. The park is huge and visits must be well planned to accommodate an entire day. There are lots to do while enjoying the ambience of lush greenery. The planetarium tour concludes at 4:30 pm. the nook and crannies at the... More
