Great park... Has museums, outside theater, racketball courts, gold course, zoo and so much more. Safe part of town. But make sure you use a GPS because you could get lost if your not familiar with the roads.

Lots to do in the park from tennis to horses to the skating rink and lake. Sometimes crowded in spots but rarely a problem. Art Hill is the best for sledding in the winter!

Have went to Forest Park over the years since I was a child (now 57). There are the zoo, planetarium, picnicking, art museum. It is a beautiful park to visit with your family. Highly recommend it.

Didn't know if we'd be able to squeeze in Forest Park with all the other stuff we had on our list, but the convenience of the Trolley Bus (and I see they have actual Trolley Tours now, for key events!) made at least a ride-through possible, so I could re-live some very fond times growing up there. Love that so... More

This is another great park to visit while you're in St. Louis. Tower Grove Park is by far much more appealing, but Forest Park is right behind.

There were some nice areas around the park and we wanted to visit the boat house and walk around a bit. Unfortunately, summer does not seem like the best time to plan this visit. Being outdoors in record breaking heat and humidity is not a good look!

We visited the Turtle Park (just south of zoo), waterfall (northwest corner of park), and Wonderland playground (at the visitor's center). Really a wonderful park with lots to for all ages. Very impressive.

We saw this from our tour bus, but there are so many places in the park to visit, we'll go back when we can spend a day taking in the attractions and enjoying the scenic beauty of the park.

Forest park is beautiful and such a great part of St. Louis. I love that it is an oasis in the midst of a big city. Well done St. Louis.
