It was a rainy day but great for a walk. I walked around the fountains and went into some areas of the museum. I love how the museum, zoo and other tourist attractions are spaced far apart throughout the park. I came to the park years ago for Lou fest and it was awesome.

An excellent city park filled with many things to do for the entire family, including the #1 free place in the U.S., the St. Louis Zoo. A beautiful oasis from the hectic city life of St. Louis.

This is an amazing City Park that is St. Louis' answer to Central Park in NYC. It was beautiful and blooming when we were there. The Art Museum is located there and is FREE. The St. Louis Zoo is part of this complex and is FREE! Fishing. Bike riding. Good place for kids to run off steam.

You can't leave St. Louis without spending some time...hours, days... at Forest Park. Especially in nice weather, but also its own beauty in winter. This is one of America's Great Parks, and so easy to get around.

This park is by far at the top of my list of things to do when visiting St. Louis. It is a place to go to walk, take in the beauty of the place or just sit and watch people enjoying themselves.

We walked through this park on our way to Washington University. We stayed at the Hampton Inn on the other side of the freeway and it was a 40 minute walk through the park to campus. Beautiful park to enjoy.

Great pre-dinner place during the holidays. Authentic carriage ride. Be sure to dress warm and pick a carriage with blankets.
