Worst

All reviews seem positive

I live near the Zoo at Forest park and find it to be a wonderful source of activities and continuing education for young and old. 4/19/2007

As an educator, the Zoo continues to be a great resource for all. If visiting, be sure to see what childrens' and families' day course may be available. I am extremely interested in talking to cslang or anyone else with memories of elephant rides, the purchase of this elephant, or anything else pertaining to the first years of the St. Louis Zoo. Any family members still around from the first elephant riders, photos or certificates. Putting together history project for this time in Zoo history. more

Better than ever! 12/29/2003

2004 is the 100th anniversary of this magnificent urban park, a beautiful remnant of the World's Fair, and you really should check it out for yourself. I'm old enough to remember operettas at the Muny, riding my horse on trails that are now smoothly paved for wheeled users, screaming down Art Hill on the inverted hood of a '54 Chevy, seeing the monkey/pony show at the Zoo, riding an elephant there named Miss Jim, boatrides, ice skating, golf, matches at the Dwight Davis tennis courts, the Science Center, the Jewel Box floral displays, the Spirit of St. Louis at the Missouri Historical Society. Still, my memories are eclipsed by the great fun to be soaked up there today. See for yourself. Pros: Convenient, Newly renovated, Metrolink accessable more

Best park hands down 6/13/2003

This is the best urban park in the country hands down. If you want to offer a rating on something, you should see the topics at hand yourself. It offers a central location with a skyline view of the central west end. It has the history of the Olyimpics, and Worlds Fair both in 1904. World class facilities such as the Science Center, History/Art Museums, Stienberg Skate Rink, 27 holes of golf, Muny which is the largest outdoor off Broadway Theater in the country, the Jewel Box and the Stl Zoo, one of the best in th world. I could go on and on, but you need to see it for yourself to realize no city has a better urban park period. Pros: Culture, History, Scenic Views more

More to see... 8/27/2002

I selected Forest Park because you can visit the History Museum, Art Museum, Jewel Box, Science Center/Planetarium. Go Ice Skating, Bicycling, Blading, Walking, Golfing. Watch ballgames, paddling in Boat Lake, see a show at the Muny or see the Zoo! Pros: convenient location, inexpensive Cons: some difficult parkin, go elsewhere for food more

The Park's the Place 8/18/2002

There is so much to do there, that a tourist really needs a couple of days to see it all. The Zoo, the Science Center and the Art museum are my top picks. In the summer time, I would recommend catching the Muny in action. more

Almost like Central Park in NY 7/23/2002

This reminds me of Central Park in NY but on a smaller scale and with a lot less people. There is still a crowd but the park is big enough to handle it. There is a ton of stuff to do here (Zoo, Muny, Museums, Picnicing, etc.) Pros: Lots to do, Scenery, Everything is free Cons: Parking can be a prob more

Great Memories 5/15/2002

I grew up in St. Louis, now live on the West Coast, and this park is one of my favorite places in the country. As a kid, we took field trips to the Forest Park to visit the zoo, the art museum. On winter weekends and snow days, my parents would take us to the park to sled down the hill in front of the art museum. Wonderful memories. Locals, enjoy what you've got right in your back yards! Pros: Great attractions, Beautiful grounds more
