Forest Park-One of the Many Wonders of St. Louis

I am soon leaving for my weekly socially distanced lunch with a friend at Forest Park. I always come away from those lunches energized and positive, not only because of the conversation with my friend but because of the beauties of Forest Park. It is a place that combines cultural attractions like the zoo,history museum, art museum, but for its sheer beauty. Maybe most important all kinds of people of different ages, ethnic groups, and nationalities are using and enjoying the park. I like others am quick to criticize St. Louis. I need to do a better job of pointing out great amenities like Forest Park.

Forest Park

Forest Park in St. Louis has been selected as the best urban park in the United States. The award is well deserved. With all the problems in St. Louis, it is easy to overlook our great resources; Forest Park being at the top of the list. In addition to being a great park in its’ own right it is home to the St. Louis Zoo, St. Louis Art Museum, Missouri History Museum, The St. Louis Science Center, and the Municipal Opera. The park had always been great and has been very successfully improved by the efforts of Forest Park Forever. Announcements were made today about improvements for the future. Written by Paul Dribin
