I couldn't believe it but Forest Park is bigger than Central Park! It is very clean, and quite beautiful. Not to mention the Zoo is free to visit and my kids just love walking in the Zoo, A great place to visit year-round.

We love bringing our family here. Every year our entire family gets together a couple times and this is the place we do it. Plenty of space for everyone and the kids love it. We hope to continue coming here for years to come.
