It was quite hot so we did not take many long walks in the park. However, for some shade, there are so many interesting places to visit: Art museum, History Museum, Science Museum and the Zoo. The children liked the last two, especially.

We spent a few hours wondering around the trails in Forest Park today. We walked over some bridges, watched some ducks, sat in the shade. It was very peaceful and relaxing. We rented a paddle boat too.

Forest Park is great! The ability to park the car and in one spot and then visit multiple attractions such as the zoo and Missouri History Museum (both free) is wonderful. Contains great biking and walking trails as well.
