This park is amazing. There's tons of places to walk, lounge, and visit. Activities include the History Museum, Art Museum, Boathouse, Paddleboats, the Muny, etc. My favorite though is just to walk around and people watch on a nice Saturday. It has lovely ponds and bridges to walk around. Be careful though because it is easy to get lost!

A place for whatever interests you. A world class zoo, top tier Art Museum, Science Center, History Museum and more fitting into wonderfully groomed 1500 acres with bike & walking/runnning paths.

Forest Park is a lovely park for family fun. The St. Louis Zoo is located within the park, as well as the Art Museum, Science Center, & History Museum. There are lovely places to picnic spread throughout the park. The Municipal Opera is also located within the park.

The park is beautiful. Drive through the park or take the trolley to see everything but also get out and walk the trails. You can rent paddle boats as well to get around the water. The museums are free and amazing.

We were visiting the area on college visits, and stayed just of the southwest corner of the park. Between having our dog along, and just having some time to tour, we found Forest Park to be very nice and conveniently next door. I took the dog for some outings and runs through the park. We did a family visit to... More

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Forest Park! My husband and I live down the street from the history museum in a condo, and feel so very fortunate that Forest Park is our backyard :) I visit Forest Park so often I can't even count the number of times--I would say I come here several times a week.

The Muny theatre was closed but looked like a fantastic venue. The museum was big and spacious, containing lots of interactive exhibitions- well worth a visit. But if you go on the metro, getting off can be a bit scary as there were all sorts of people milling around, looking very dodgy there.

We got off the metro at the Forest Park stop and found of the trolley was not running until April. We literally walked across the park to get to the zoo. Even though the park was nice, it wasn't worth the walk.
