Every year for all 23 years of my life I have attended the Ole Marais Car Show in Forest Park. It is a wonderful event in a beautiful setting. The park continues to make improvements and additions.

If you are traveling with children and you all need a break from the car, this is it. Great place for children to run and play on the equipment - slides and climbing equipment, and more. Shake out the sillys and wiggles and continue on...More

Took my sons to the park for sunshine and exercise. Several baseball diamonds, horse shoe pitch, basketball and tennis courts. Bathrooms available in several locations. Several playgrounds for little kids. During the summer, a large and attractive swimming pool available.

Beautiful trees, spacious picnicking grounds offer a shady place to either gather with family and friends or simply walking for fresh air and relaxing. Historic yet little evidence of the park at its peak beauty from the early 1900s. Tennis courts. Swimming pool. Children's playground.
