Forest Park St Louis

Worlds Fair Pavilion in Forest Park

Forest Park was established in 1874 as one of the largest urban parks in the United States. It officially opened to the public in 1876 and was the location of the 1904 World's Fair (the Louisiana Purchase Exposition of 1904). Several structures from the Fair still exist today, the St. Louis Art Museum and the 1904 Flight Cage in the St. Louis Zoo. In 2004, the City of St. Louis completed a $100 million face-lift to Forest Park to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the 1904 World's Fair.
