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.
