Owner description: The site of the 1904 World's Fair, America's second largest urban park is a prime St. Louis recreation spot.
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Walked around during a nice day! Fountain outside of Worlds Fair Pavilion was our favorite. While we didn't do all the activities, there were many people golfing on the courses, picnicking with family and on paddleboats on the lake. Would give 5 stars if all parking was free.

No visit to St. Louis is complete without a day in this wonderful park. In addition to its 6.2 miles walking, running cycling path that circumvents the park, visitors can see the world-class Saint Louis Art Museum with its recently opened new wing, the amazing St. Louis Zoo--one of the nation's best--the History Museum, renowned Muny opera, Boat House, 1904 World's Fair Pavilion and other sites. Forest Park is one of the best examples of a public/private partnership having benefited from an outstanding collaboration between private donors and government to renovate this local gem. Plan to spend the day; you can rent bicycles just outside the Jones visitor's center or stroll for hours. Not to be missed. We enjoy Forest Park for fitness, activities with friends and grandkids, showing off to visitors from around the country.

Bigger than Central Park, free, and beautiful. You can choose to run, bike, walk, golf, play tennis, racquetball, visit museums, go to the zoo,play ball, eat or just relax by one of the gorgeous streams, ponds or lake. I've seen many city parks and this is the best!

Forest Park is such an asset to St. Louis and it's residents! The park has something for everyone: hiking, fishing, golf, etc. Plus, there's a free art museum and zoo! I look forward to my next trip to st. Louis to revisit the park.

Amazingly Large in City Park. Exceptionally Clean, well maintained and enjoyed by all who visit. Free concerts, plays, entertainment, sports and more. The extensive winding roadways were a great help to see it during a hot and humid May. The park holds the Free St. Louis Zoo, St. Louis Art Museum, History Museum and more. We saw people playing golf, kids in camp, pedal boats on the lake, joggers, walkers, parents and children enjoying the fresh air. Have fun.
