Forest Park

A beautiful 1300-acre park in downtown St Louis with a zoo, golf course, fish hatchery, sports fields, history museum, art museum, lakes, rivers, forests, outdoor amphitheater with seating for 1500 people, (1904) World’s Fair Pavilion, planetarium, and paths everywhere. Pea gravel for walkers, paved for cyclists and brave walkers/runners – directional signs point to “Heels” or “Wheels”. The paved outer loop is about 6 miles – we rode it twice. There are also intersecting paths throughout the park.

Great ride. 14 miles. We’d parked at the Boathouse in the early morning and did our riding. By the time we were done, it was time for a different adventure and then lunch at the Boathouse.
