During this time of social distancing, it has never been more important to enjoy our parks and outdoor attractions, but in a safe and healthy way. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers guidelines and recommendations, and more specifically, National Recreation and Parks Association provides guidance on how park and recreation professionals and the public can stay safe and healthy while using public parks and trails during the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

The St. Louis area has great options for outdoor enthusiasts of all types. Visit the Missouri Botanical Garden and the many great attractions along the I-44 corridor. Explore one of many parks including America’s favorite urban park, Forest Park.  Hike and bike along endless trails that crisscross the region.
