What a gorgeous park! I am so impressed with the mix of museums and outdoor features here. We arrived before the flowers were in bloom but I can envision how gorgeous that will be this Spring. I highly recommend this area!

A nice, big park with lots to see. During my visit in December, it was quite peaceful with few other visitors. However, it seems like it would be bustling in the warmer months. There are numerous attractions here, but I just wish there was a...More

Lots of free activities in the park. Would be a fun filled day for people of all ages. They offer a trolley for $2 to help you get around. It is huge!

A visit to St. Louis is incomplete with a visit to Forest Park. This si the home of the Zoo, Science Center, The Muny, Museums, and several other must see attractions.

Forest Park consists of over 1,300 gorgeous acres. A wonderful group called Forest Park Forever, has returned the park to it's former beauty. It was the site of the 1904 World's Fair and unfortunately, only 1 building from that era remains. It is the St....More

As urban parks go, St. Louie's Forest Park is second only to New York's Central Park, and it's a WHOLE lot cheaper to stay near and enjoy. And then there's that world class zoo adjoining the park!

Clearly you got caught in zoo traffic coming in off on Hampton. The better options, even if you are going to the zoo is too get off at either end of the park (McClausand or Kingshighway). We were at the park yesterday and... More
