This park is an outstanding example of what a city can accomplish for it’s citizens. The green spaces are beautiful and the numerous museums are free and provide endless entertainment and educational opportunities. Highly recommend.

This park is pet friendly. Your dog can roam around. There are a planetarium and science museum. Also a botanical garden. You can spend a few hours at this place. There are so much to see.

I visited a couple of attractions in Forest Park and drove around a bit. If the weather had been nicer, it would have been a great place to head out for a walk to explore. What a treasure in this city!
