Bring a blanket, a ball, a kite, a deck of cards, some food and drinks. Sit at the top of Art Hill and people watch. Roll down the hill if you aren't a chicken, like me.

A bus carries you between attractions for a small fee. Wonderful waterways and bridges and gorgeous trees. Be sure to stop and the Museum of Missouri and see photographs of the Exposition which transformed the park! Clean, safe,

Yes, on a leash. Clean up after them.
Thank you you, folks, for the answer. I don't now. I wasn't driving and am so new to St Louis.
