Since 1876, boating in Forest Park has been a popular St. Louis tradition. This time-honored pastime has returned.

You will also come across some of the parks most treasured landmarks: The Saint Louis Art Museum, St. Louis Zoo, World’s Fair Pavilion, Art Hill, Grand Basin and the Government Hill Fountain.
