We’ve walked in Forest Park twice this week, taking advantage of this week’s warmer weather. The first time, we parked the car in the southwest corner of the park and then walked around the zoo. On this stroll, we can peer through the various gates and occasionally see an animal or two. Yesterday, we parked near the Jewel Box and then toured the water features of the park. This ramble was a little bit muddy. People must be becoming satiated of the outdoors, after being cooped up by the cold, because there were surprisingly few people in the park. Part of our inspiration for walking in Forest Park came from a Google news article that announced that the park was named the best city park in the country.
