Self-guided audio tours of Forest Park are available for checkout from the Dennis & Judith Jones Visitor and Education Center - 5595 Grand Drive. Designed to accommodate different paces, the walks take between 30 to 60 minutes to complete. Tours explore park history, both distant and recent, and point out aspects of the Park not easily noticed from an automobile.
Tours are FREE but require a credit card (Mastercard or Visa) as a refundable deposit for using the iPod listening device. Tours may also be downloaded from this site onto any MP3 player to be enjoyed at your leisure. Please see below.
iPods are available for check out on a first-come, first-serve basis from the Forest Park Forever office, Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. or from the Visitor Center Information Desk on weekday evenings until 7:00 p.m. and weekends, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.. iPods may even be returned the following day if checked out in the late afternoon/evening.
Forest Park audio walking tours are made possible by a generous grant from The Trio Foundation of St. Louis.
