Did you know that Forest Park in St. Louis is twice the size of Central Park in New York City? Home to old-growth forests, restored forests and woodlands, wetlands, tallgrass prairies and savannas – not to mention, the fascinating wildlife that inhabits those environments – Forest Park also boasts vibrant cultural institutions and exciting sports facilities.
While Forest Park acts as the green lung of the Gateway City, it’s only the beginning. St. Louis is packed with verdant public parks that provide open space and fresh air for all.
Go for a walk, take a bike ride or jump in a kayak. Have a picnic, kick a ball or photograph the flowers. With this list, you can enjoy our parks any way you want.
