I have many fond memories of Forest Park as a child, as a young Mother bringing my children there and now as a place to bring my grandchildren. It is also one of my favorite place to take photographs and I will share them with you on the rest of this post.
I visited there with my photo club on a recent spring evening and took the photo above and the beautiful daisies that lines the sides of the pond.
The first photo on this page and the ones below were taken at the entrance area to the Muny.
The BoathouseThe Boathouse in Forest Park is a favorite gathering place of visitors to the park. It is located just across the way from the Muny and is especially a favorite place for theatre goers to have a meal before or after the show. The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating.
By the dock is an area where you can rent paddleboats and kayaks to ride around in the great basin. This is a favorite of my granddaughters.
After our photo club outing we met at the outdoor area of the Boathouse to sit by the dock and discuss the photos we took. Here are a couple of the photos that I took from the docks.
