A Brief History of Forest Park

Based on a proposal by Andrew McKinley and officially established by the General Assembly in 1874, Forest Park has been an epicenter of culture and entertainment all throughout St. Louis history. In 1904 it was the site of that years World’s Fair, dubbed the Louisiana Purchase Exposition, and even hosted several events for the St. Louis Summer Olympics. Over the years, many attractions were constructed and dedicated on its soil, from The Palace of the Arts (which you may know now as The Saint Louis Art Museum in Forest Park) to the world famous Saint Louis Zoo. Today it continues to be a local hotspot for citizens and tourists alike, attracting over 12 million visitors annually.

The Main Attractions

It’s nigh impossible to capture all the wonder and beauty of Forest Park on the page, but we’ll try and point out some of its brightest highlights. Of course no visit to St. Louis would be complete without a visit to our famous free zoo, which features lions, penguins, and even elephants! But while you’re at it, don’t forget to check out the Jewel Box, a gorgeous art deco greenhouse built in 1936. Its architecture is as stunning as the botany inside. And at night, why not catch a show at The Muny, our lovely and historic outdoor theatre? It’ll be the perfect end to a perfect day out in Forest Park.
