This is another St. Louis gem. Not only is it a huge, beautiful park (500 acres larger than Central Park, but you can take the $2 day pass trolley throughout), but most of the attractions are free, including the zoo and museums. The Boathouse is a great place to stop for a drink or a meal and watch the paddle... More

This park is lovely! I was staying about 20 minutes away by car, so I took an Uber to the visitors center and in the parking lot there is a bike rental company called City Cycling Tours. From what I can tell it's just one guy and his van full of bikes. He sizes you for a bike and a... More

You native St. Louisians (is that a word? I don't know!) are a lucky, lucky bunch. This park is such a fantastic place. So much lush nature and so many other activities/places to visit in one spot. We were visiting during a heatwave, but the place was packed with all kinds of folks enjoying everything there is to offer. Truly... More

My family enjoyed exploring the beautiful and spacious Forest Park. The park offers many wonderful opportunities. We enjoyed visiting the zoo and the science center located in the park. We also enjoyed seeing the Boathouse and the Muny theater. On our next visit, we will eat lunch at the Boathouse and take in a show at the theater.

Park looks beautiful but there has to be an easier way to access and exit this park. Someone needs to be directing traffic or have shuttles available for remote parking.
