“The largest park in the United States!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Beautiful park with many sites to visit. The Zoo, the Art Museum, the Planitarium, and the Boat House for lunch or dinner are just some of the great attractions that Forest Park provides. You'll love it!

“A Park with Many Museums”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Forest Park has the Zoo, Muny, Art Museum, History Museum, Planetarium, Science Museum, a small boat lake with pedal boats and a restaurant. It also has golf, tennis and walking/bike paths and during the winter - a ice skating rink. Not recommended to just walk/bike after dark.

“Extensive Grounds, Something for All”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Don't miss the Jewel Box, The Korean War Memorial, The MUNY, The St. Louis Zoo, The Boathouse, The St. Louis Art Museum, or the extensive walking/biking paths! Drive or walk this vast park located near the Central West End, in the heart of St. Louis! Many of the structures were built for the 1904 World's Fair, including the zoo aviary which is visible from the street as you drive by. Have lunch at the Boathouse and rent a canoe or paddle boat and make sure to paddle over for a good view of the beautiful Art Museum and the new addition, recently opened. Reservations for the Boathouse are recommended.
