This is a very large and beautiful park. It is relatively safe. However, I no longer walk alone in the park. It is a beautiful park for walking with others.

Forest Park is one of the Nation's largest "true" Urban/City parks in the USA. It has both Nature and History as being a World's Fair venue. It contains many awesome venues such as the St. Louis Zoo, The History Museum, The Art Museum, The Jewel Box, The Muny, countless soccer fields, tennis courts, trails, fountains, forests, etc... This park is... More

This park is wonderful, a big oasis right in the middle of the city. Great place to walk, bike, run, play with your kids or dog! We love it.

If you are from out of town you have to devote a day to Forrest Park. Do your homework before you go and learn some of the history of the park including the 1904 Worlds Fair. Check out the Zoo, Science Museum, Jewel Box, Art Museum, and maybe stay for a Muny production, if there is one. Maybe pack a... More

Even with St. Louis full of people for the marathon Forest Park parking was not impossible. It was crowded, and we had to drive around a bit to get spaces, but we were able to find space at all times. The walks between the museums and the zoo were very pleasant. The Eastern Red Bud trees were in full bloom... More

There is so much to enjoy in Forest Park that it is almost to much to comprehend. It is an incredibly gorgeous place to visit for an afternoon or early evening while the sun is setting. Within the park itself is the art museum and the city zoo. Throughout the year there will be festivals of all sorts. It is... More

We did the park because we wanted to explor what was there. We found the Davis Tennis facility first and watched some college tennis, then on to see the pond, art museum, etc. The site of the 1904 Worlds fair is very nice. Thank goodness they did not tear down all the buildings. Since most all is free, it is... More

What I love most about Forest Park is that there is always something new to see or discover. This is truly one of the best urban parks in the United States. From the art and history museums to the (free) zoo, from the oldest outdoor theater in America to the Jewel Box greenhouse, from the golf course to the ice... More

Forest Park is similar to Central Park in NYC, in fact I am told that it is bigger. There are Museums, Science Center, a golf course, archery range, Zoo, running paths and more I am sure. I used the park to run. The outside loop is about six miles of fairly flat running and biking path, enough rolling hills to... More

This huge park reminds me just like Central Park In New York on a lower scale. They have plenty of open space here, game fields, playgrounds, a zoo, the muny and so much more! Love it!
