Forest Park

These colorful trees flank St. Louis’ art museum and create a border around Art Hill in front of the museum. Fall can be spectacular in our urban Forest Park. The park is located in western St. Louis, Missouri and consisting of 1,326 acres. Opened in 1876, more than a decade after its proposal, the park has hosted several significant events, including the Louisiana Purchase Exposition of 1904 and the 1904 Summer Olympics.

This area overlooks the “Grand Basin” which was the center part of the 1904 Worlds’s Fair and featured waterways with gondolas taking visitors from place to place.
