Forest Park was dedicated on June 24, 1876, coinciding with the centenary of the United States Declaration of Independence.

It played host to the 1904 World's Fair.

The 1,300-acre park offers something for everyone — amazing destinations and institutions that challenge the mind, a Dual Path system that invites both leisurely walks and intense workouts, quiet places to picnic and read, and a variety of popular festivals and events — all set in the background of a city oasis, a place to escape it all.
