What you'll do

During this outdoor/cultural experience, we will make new friends and take a walking tour of the hidden gems in Forest Park. We will meet as a group in the park's Visitor's Center, briefly get to know each other, and then explore 3-4 sites around the park. There are several options for where we go based on the group's interests and abilities as well as the weather conditions (some hidden gems are outside, while others are inside). For more than 130 years, Forest Park has given its visitors a sense of being lost in nature and a chance to take a break from busy city life. Not only does Forest Park offer many wonderful walking and biking trails, it is also home to world-class cultural institutions including the St. Louis Art Museum, the Missouri History Museum, the St. Louis Zoo, and the St. Louis Science Center. I will provide a small snack for each guest, as well as historical anecdotes about the park and advice on where to eat and explore in St. Louis. I am excited to meet you!

Krista

I am a National Geographic certified educator and world traveler. I have been living in St. Louis for the past 5+ years, and absolutely love this city. Last summer I completed Forest Park Forever's Summer Voyagers Program, which is a unique opportunity for St. Louis educators to learn how to use Forest Park as an outdoor classroom. I learned about many hidden gems in Forest Park, and now I want to share these hidden gems with you! I have traveled to all six inhabited continents, and studied and/or worked in many countries including Argentina, Finland, Costa Rica, Australia, Slovakia and the United States. In all my travels, I have never found an urban park that beats Forest Park and I am excited to show you some of my favorite spots :)

What's included

Where you'll be

We can visit several places in Forest Park, including a stocked fishing area where local children can learn to fish from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, several habitat renewal sites that show what St. Louis looked like before Europeans arrived to Missouri, and a magnificent building created for the 1904 World Fair (do you have a guess which building...?)

Activity advisory

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 8 guests ages 14 and up can attend. Children under the age of 14 are welcome, but please let me know in advance. I try to separate tours with children and those without children so I can make sure to meet everyone's needs!

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
