Forest Park

Interesting
Opened in 1876, it covers more ground than New York's Central Park and is famous for having hosted the Louisiana Purchase Exposition in 1904. Opened to the public in 1876, this pleasant park today provides the setting for St. Louis' major cultural institutions, as well as the zoo and the outdoor Muny Theatre.
