A Visit to Forest Park is a must if you are visiting St Louis. it is a huge park, located three/four miles west of downtown with three exits off I 64. There is so much to see and do...almost impossible in one visit. The park is bigger than Central Park in New York but you can drive through it and... More

27 holes at northwest corner of park. The course is in very good shape, although sand traps are packed down. Bordering streets, Lindell and Skinker, have beautiful homes with edge of Washington University at the corner. The 3 9-hole courses are named Hawthorn, Redbud, & Dogwood. Hawthorn is flat with short par 3 over a lake on the 9th hole.... More

You can rent paddle boats at some small lakes or just walk around this lush "forest." It's right next to the zoo also, so depending when you go, parking could be an issue.

The site of the 1904 World's Fair, the park has miles of walking/biking trails, a free & fabulous Art Museum, a History Museum and a great & also free Zoo. This park is bigger than Central Park in NYC

Pretty neat, home of the 1904 World's Fair and the Muni Opera (seats apprximately 7,000). It's a beautiful park with tennis courts & stadium, all types of fields, museum and golf course. if you like Central Park in NY - you'll love Forest Park.

So many things to see, but its a slower pace. Don't expect to rush through, take your time, explore all the little nooks of this gem of a park. Hit up the Lake House and enjoy the lake and the views.

This park is beautiful. The art museum is free and full of beautiful pieces. One of the best parks in the US. History of World's fair. You can spend the whole day here. Great walking paths. Shakespear in the summer is a must see. Check out the MUNY. The Zoo rocks. Can't wait for the Polar Bear exhibit!.

Another St Louis landmark. Art Museum, St a Louis Zoo. If you've never been here this is a must. Love taking grandkids to the zoo. And yes it's still free thanks to the residents of St Louis City and County. Go. See lions and tigers and such.

Forest Park has so much to offer the whole family. The zoo is 1st class and free. The art museum is also free and has so many treasures to see. The Historic Museum has many interesting exhibits. there are walking and biking trails, golf, fishing, paddle boats and the Muny Opera in the summertime.
