On this day (Thur June 24th 2021) in 1876, Forest Park formally opened to the public
Because 1,100 of the park's 1,380 acres of land were forested, the name Forest Park was agreed upon. At the time of it's opening, the park was considered very far away from the City, but it is now a central and integral part St. Louis' urban fabric and cultural life! Happy 145th birthday, Forest Park!
