St. Louis’ Forest Park, first dedicated at a large public ceremony in 1876, consists of 1,371.75 acres, making it one of the largest urban parks in the country. In 1904, the western end of Forest Park hosted the World’s Fair. The only permanent building remaining from that event is the Saint Louis Art Museum. Today, Forest Park plays hosts to over 10 million visitors a year. Besides biking, the park offers various activities, including softball, cricket, rugby, tennis, golf, archery, fishing, horseback riding, lacrosse, soccer, ice skating, and roller skating.

The Forest Park Bike Paths run throughout the park, and hilly sections of the asphalt bike path provide cyclists with a good workout. An exercise par course is located along the bike path near the park’s north edge between Lindell Boulevard and Grand Drive.

PARKING: Parking can be found in various areas throughout Forest Park.
