This park is amazing - lots of trails for bikers and runners/walkers and interesting points of interest - archery, tennis, golf, museums, in the winter an ice skating rink, etc.

Nice park, lots to see. Put your walking shoes on to see the sights. The Boathouse Restaurant was well worth the stop. Food was very good and good value for the money. Museums and the St. Louis Zoo is attached.

If you're visiting St. Louis, this is the place to go. It's huge and you can spent at LEAST one full day doing things there. You might need a couple more days though. Attractions include: St. Louis Art Museum, Missouri History Museum, St. Louis Science Center, The Muny, the Jewel Box, and the ever so popular St. Louis Zoo. It's... More

One of the best kept secrets in the US - though everyone's heard of Central Park in NYC, few have heard of this gorgeous nature's gem, which is larger and contains more entertainment than anyone can see in less than a week, most of which is FREE! Dining at the boat house, which is a reasonable place to eat with... More

Twice the size of New Yorks central park and the home to many museums. It was the home of the 1893 World's Fair and a place not to miss on your visit.

What a surprise to find such a nice family friendly, free attraction in St Louis. We rode the metro to Forest Park for the Balloon Races and it was a great time. Everything was free (except the metro ride), refreshments were available for purchase also but no admission for the race or for the Missouri History Museum. From the metro... More

Forest Park is such a gem. There is something to do there for everyone, from relaxing to walking the many trails. Not only is it convenient, but it is beautiful with flora and fauna that appears to be rustic. If you take the time to follow some of the pasts, you come across many hidden gems and will be quite...

Had plenty of things for families to do as a group or with their kids. Note that even with reserved seats nothing much happens until after 3pm on Saturday wished I would have know this as it was a very long day waiting but a good time!
