Off we go to begin our exploration of St. Louis. So much to see and do it was hard to decide where to start but after a travel day, we like to stretch our legs so Forest Park was the perfect stop!
Yes, more Arch photos…get used to it!
This city park is HUGE!!! A whopping 1,371 dog friendly acres, that’s 500 more than NYC’s Central Park!
Here we are at the World’s Fair Pavillion circa 1909 (actually built from the 1904 World’s Fair proceeds) it is gorgeous!
Forest Park has just about everything you could possibly want or need. Miles of trails, an incredible mix of landscapes and activities including a boat house!
Turn one corner and there is a Art or History Museum, turn another and its au-natural!
The Forest Park Pagoda! Plus, next door is the Muni Theater!
Then very natural looking wetlands!
The Great Basin and home to this handsome Ibis!
The majestic St Louis Art Museum too! Seriously, it’s an overload!
We ladies love the trails and the surprises around each corner!
Finally, even the St. Louis Zoo is here. What a fantastic park….nature, history and culture living harmoniously….well done!!!
