Young Friends

Join this exciting group of young professionals who support Forest Park through fun and lively networking events throughout St. Louis.

We are a group of young professionals living in St. Louis and the surrounding area. We love and support Forest Park. For us, the Park symbolizes community, an active lifestyle and a place to bring art and culture to the public. This is a group for people who want to meet other active, community-driven 20’s and 30’s in a fun, social environment. Some of our networking events include happy hours, behind-the-scene tours, service projects, an annual outdoor tournament and more. All proceeds from our memberships and events benefit Forest Park Forever.
