Beautiful scenery - tons of open space in the middle of the city. The zoo and art museum are located here and are FREE!!!!!
Home of the 1904 Worlds Fair and the 4th Olympics - I believe. The Art Museum and Lagoon still remain. The St. Louis Zoo - one of the best in the US and is free is there. The Missouri Historical Society museum is in FP. During the summer you can take in an off Broadway musical at the Muny Opera... More
Forest Park is one of our City's jewels. Recently underwent a massive renovation. Many of St. Louis' best attractions are located here, including the St. Louis Art Museum, St. Louis Zoo. St. Louis (outdoor) Municipal Opera, golf course, and others. It's a wonderful place to visit, driving through or walking.
Several things to do and attend on any weekend. Went to the African festival here. The park was crowded because of other events going on at the same time, it was worth the wait/patience once parked. Any other day of the week, the place is active with cyclists, walkers, sunbathers, etc. A nice place to lay on a blanket and... More
Driving through Forest Park is a challenge as the roads circle and crossover repeatedly. Parking can be a challenge as well, although it is improving - but at a price. The Zoo is here, several museums, the Muny, skating, golf, bike paths. Not necessarily the safest place in the city.
What isn't there to do in Forest Park? There is everything! Zoo during day and Muny Opera at night! How about some golfing and then go rent a paddle boat or canoe on lake. There is also tennis matches or museums (Art and History). How about snow sledding when it is cold? What a park, actually bigger than Central Park... More
I am biased becuase I live near this park but I just love it! I've been to Central park and it's crowded and not as pleasant. Forest Park has the Zoo-one of the best in the country and it's FREE! There is a out door municipal theater during the summer which is just fantastic, great top quality shows, free if... More
I regularly visit Forest Park for exercise and just to see all the people being active. I visit the park alone anywhere from 6:30 a.m. until dusk. I would not recommend to visit after dusk for obvious reasons; however the Zoo is wonder, the History and Art Museum are great places to visit. The racket ball court, tennis court, baseball... More
It is so clearly a loved gem of the city that we enjoyed being a part of it for even a short visit. It was particularly of interest to see some of the buildings that remain from the 1904 World's Fair. Would like to have had more casual time but was pleased just to drive about and take some walks.
