Forest Park in St. Louis, MO

Forest Park was my favorite part of St. Louis when I lived there. It's a huge urban park on the western edge of the city. As the name indicates, it used to be heavily forested. But the city decided to chop down all the trees to help build the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis. The wood was later recycled to build many of the original buildings in Richmond Heights, MO.
