The City of St. Louis Department of Parks, Recreation and Forestry is once again offering hayrides in Forest Park on Friday and Saturday nights on fall weekends.
Tractors pull the wagons, leaving from Faulkner and Wells Drive, and take approximately 45 minutes. A 30-minute bonfire is included after the hayride. You can bring items to roast at the bonfire. Only food and non-alcoholic beverages such as hot dogs, marshmallows, and cocoa are allowed at the bonfire.
Reservations are required for hayrides, and all reservations must be made in person. You are reserving the entire wagon. The fee is $200 for one hayride wagon, with a maximum of 10 people per wagon. Note: Babies, children, pets, etc. count as one person, even if you are holding them or placing them on your lap.
