St. Louis, MO, November 30, 2017 — Forest Park: Snapshots of a St. Louis Gem is a new publication from Forest Park Forever, the nonprofit conservancy that partners with the City of St. Louis to care for Forest Park. Sales of the book, which is available for $14.95, directly support Park restoration and maintenance.

Forest Park is one of the most photogenic places in St. Louis, the nation and the world. Countless wedding and prom parties choose Forest Park as their backdrop; the fall foliage on Art Hill is an annual Instagram tradition; and countless selfies are taken all over these 1,300 acres. The team at Forest Park Forever is just as keen to capture the Park’s beauty as the rest of St. Louis, and this book is a collection of some of their best images from the last few years.

The square-format publication nods to Instagram, the most popular social media channel for sharing Forest Park beauty. The book features 60 images, with sites ranging from iconic locations like the World’s Fair Pavilion and Pagoda Circle to more hidden natural areas like Round Lake Vista and Deer Lake Savanna. A map in the final pages helps readers locate where each photo was taken.

Forest Park: Snapshots of a St. Louis Gem makes an ideal visitor keepsake or gift for a loved one — especially around the holidays. Books can be purchased online at or by visiting the Forest Park Forever office at the Dennis & Judith Jones Visitor and Education Center, 5595 Grand Drive in Forest Park. Inquiries can be sent to
