The St. Louis Zoo - Review by jane S | Saint Louis Zoo

Saint Louis Zoo


The St. Louis Zoo 8/17/2006

Located in Forest Park in the heart of St. Louis is a wonderful zoo, and the best part is the FREE admission. The Saint Louis Zoo has educated, entertained and earned a place in the hearts of St. Louisans for generations. With the Louisiana Purchase Exposition in 1904, there began a long and slow process to establish a zoological park. The St. Louis Zoological Society was formed in 1910. The City of St. Louis set aside 77 acres in Forest Park for a zoo and named a Zoological Board of Control in 1913. State legislation provided that "the zoo shall be forever free," which has kept the Zoo accessible to millions of visitors ever since. This is a large zoo, with beautiful fountains, sculptures and many animals. Make sure you wear your walking shoes! There are a few parts of the zoo that charge a minimal fee (the children's zoo, the train etc.), but you can have a great day here and never spend a penny. Food is available at various eateries within the zoo. more
