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,

Beautiful place in St. Louis, with a world fair site, next to the zoo, and easy access throughout the park. Would like to visit here again. This was a great place to take Senior portraits.

We have been very lucky with the weather on our trip to St. Louis and it helps that it is May because everything is blooming but I'm willing to bet that this park is always a good stop.

We walked maybe half of the park because it was so big. Lots of green space to run and play with kids and pets. Home of the 1904 Worlds Fair, there are plenty of things to see, including the art museum, which was beautiful.

You could walk this place for days and not see all of it. The view is stunning and the park itself is peaceful and serene. With so much to do here between the science center, the zoo and so much more you can plan a...More

Even on bad-weather days, a casual drive makes for an entertaining and visually appealing day. We watched rugby players sloshing through the mud, stopped by the art museum for inspiration and beauty, and scouted out places for future hikes and/or bike rides. What a blessing...More

Like to stroll through the gardens and see the fountains in the pools. Great place to unwind. If only there wasn't such a hassle to find a place to park.

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.
