“St. Louis treasure.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

Residents of St. Louis are so lucky to have this beautiful park to enjoy. It has everything one could want, from sports facilities to world-class museums and zoo, as well as acres and acres of lovely lawns, woods, lakes, and views to enjoy. Lovely old historic buildings. A real treasure in the heart of the city.

“Forest Park in review”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

475 acres of beautifully maintained park. Just hosted the annual Forest Park Balloon race held every year in September. The best part is the Friday night Balloon Glow. While there stop in at the Boathouse for a wonderful meal while sitting outside and enjoying the view.

“beautiful area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

This area was the original site of the World's Fair. There are ponds, shady areas and walking paths all though the large park. Many local attractions are located there including the zoo and history museum Beautiful old mansions line the surrounding streets. It is a great place to visit both on lovely days or rainy ones as you can choose to spend your time indoors or out.

“One of largest in U.S.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

This park offers everything and cost is free to enjoy its beauty.There are boats to rent, walking /running trails, museums, theatre, lots of greenery, all in the city. It seems to stretch endlessly and is a beautiful oasis in the middle of a big city. It is a great place to unwind and relax. You can spend as much or as little time as you want. Museum admission is free, but parking is $15.
