Since 1876, boating in Forest Park has been a popular St. Louis tradition. Year-round, take a leisurely sentimental journey on Post-Dispatch Lake, where you are likely to encounter colonies of ducks, heron, geese, kingfishers, schools of fish and turtles. You will also come across some of the Park's most treasured landmarks: The Saint Louis Art Museum, St. Louis Zoo, World's Fair Pavilion, Art Hill, Grand Basin and the Government Hill Fountain.
Please note: Park visitors are not permitted to bring their own boats, kayaks, etc. into the Park's waterway.
