Forest Park is a must-see spot for families visiting St. Louis. One of the United States’ largest urban parks, Forest is chock-full of kid-friendly activities and many major St. Louis attractions are located here, including the St. Louis Science Center, the St. Louis Zoo and the World’s Fair Pavilion. During winter, the Steinberg skating rink is open. And during warmer weather months, activities from paddleboat rentals to bike rentals to summer concerts are available. Bring your camera and snap some shots of the kids at Turtle Playground, a collection of seven giant turtle statues on which youngsters can crawl and climb. A shuttle within the park takes visitors to major attractions.
