st. louis: forest park

Forest Park is like Central Park in New York. Only it's not that central, and St. Louis is not as big as NYC. Nevertheless, it represents a successful school of American landscape design. I like parks of Europe, but there is something literally wild in parks of America that is very much appealing to me.
There is a ZOO in the park, which is free of charge, so half of our day in St. Louis was just strolling among animals.
