Give a gift to Forest Park in honor of its 140th anniversary! Help us keep this important community asset thriving for another 140 years.


Join the City of St. Louis and Forest Park Forever to help mark the Park's 140th birthday! 

On June 24, 1876, Forest Park was officially dedicated "for the enjoyment of yourselves, your children and your children's children forever." On Friday, June 24, 2016, we will host a celebration in honor of this momentous occasion.

10:30 a.m.: Forest Park Forever artists in residence The 442s will perform a pop-up concert just outside the Dennis & Judith Jones Visitor and Education Center.

11:00 a.m.: Forest Park Forever President & Executive Director Lesley S. Hoffarth, P.E., and City of St. Louis Department of Parks, Recreation & Forestry Director Greg Hayes will give brief remarks, followed by complimentary cupcakes from Cose Dolci Bakery and more music from The 442s.

Stop by one of the Park's institutions during the day and you may be able to grab a special "Happy Birthday, Forest Park" sticker.

Join the conversation, and send a special birthday message to Forest Park, by using the hashtag #HappyBdayForestPark!
