Quick hike on a humid spring day. Lots of shade and greenery. A little much for my small dog but we made it through

Flat easy with multiple stops for traffic. Nice views. Will repeat.

Nice little walk by the waterfront. Good amount of people out and about.

The most interesting features of the park are in the west side. A few folks out on a Saturday afternoon, using the picnic shelters, playing baseball, and just laying around. Nice place and plenty of parking.

This is simply the most beautiful park in Saint Louis. I lived about three blocks east of it on Magnolia Avenue for many years during college. Despite being sandwiched between two very busy thoroughfares you can still get lost in the nature of this park.

Every season offers incredible depth, if you arrive early after a fresh, powdery snowfall in the early morning hours it's quiet and stunning. The spring is vibrant and alive in TGP, with the smell of flowers blooming and bright spectrums of color from the various blooming flora. Summer is green and alive with people playing kickball, cycling, running and walking. Fall is majestic with shades of ochre and the soft crunch of leaves under your feet.

Visit this park, it's absolutely amazing and has so much to offer.

Great place to walk, run or bike.

Nice park but not user friendly. Signs are not very clear. But really cool old forts and nice area for dogs . By the river

Great stuff with the kids well maintained easy trails with art!!!

Great place for a short hike with wide easy to follow paths for small kids or those less able but the park also has some great trails back in the woods that are well worth exploring. It's a relatively small park so don't expect endless miles of hiking.

Cool art work but not a hike. Fun for a once and a while walk through.

Cute water fountain and a lot of cool dogs here in the afternoon

Rivers Edge trail took you off the paved trail and provided good river views. Very flat terrain, but nice scenery and a good hike for the family.

Lots of different trails from paved to bluff side.

There's the Arch! Looking forward to the development to be completed.

The parks are what makes St. Louis a great place to live.

Tourists and residents alike I suggest getting a Forest Park Guide book or read on the history of the park/area before embarking on park exploration, this will make the experience more enriching.

A nice, flat pavement for a run, walk, or bike ride as short or as long as you’d like! 60 degree weather in January made this perfect today.

A must run! Long trail that’s paved and extremely well maintained throughout the year. Awesome views of Grant’s Farm and the Clydesdales. Bathrooms are closed in the winter. Multiple places where you have to wait for traffic to stop to cross the road. My go to when I need a long run.

Nice trail close to home. Great for a warm December day.
