Makes me happy I moved away in the mid-90's. STL remains a shithole in a shit state with shit weather.

Working in the park from May - Sept for over 25yrs, I have watched it. I was upset when they cleared all of the old growth trees for the Golf Course along Lindell. There were some amazing trees lost.

The renovations and renewal in Forest Park have made it a wonderful place to visit and it is once again a real gem that all St Louisans can take pride in. I do have one comment that might seem negative but I think needs to be said. It is a fairly recent trend that major benefactors require their name, whether it be a corporation or a wealthy family, be put before the name of the entity being restored. I am very grateful to the businesses and individuals who contribute huge sums of money to help restore our landmarks to glory for all of us to enjoy. But wouldn't a plaque be just as nice? Do we really need to have a grocery store logo in the middle of our zoo? I don't mean to offend the donors, who are a very generous family in the region. But isn't the fact that you CAN do it enough of a reward?
