On Thursdays starting May 2 until September 26 enjoy a two-hour picnic dinner on a paddle boat at sunset in Forest Park. Price includes paddle boat rental, dinner, and drinks for two. Learn more.
In the shadow of the World’s Fair Pavilion, sit on a historic hill with the artful, accessible landscape. The plantings you see looking down from the top are different from the ones you see looking up the hill.
Looking for a more quiet spot for a picnic? Round Lake is located in the northeast area of the Park. The historic fountain, installed in 1916, is the perfect background noise for reading or meditating.
Set up a surprise picnic for your loved one next to Seven Pools across from Jefferson Lake and next to Bowl Lake. This area is a part of the Forest Park East Waterways improvement project. Learn more about the project here.
