The Forest Park Playground is located directly in front of the Forest Park Zoo. This can be good or bad depending on what you have planned for the day. This is a busy playground with both challenging elements for older kids and a separate playscape for toddlers. The playscape is 10 years old, so the elements are not new, but they are also not rusted metal. The swings are located at a second area behind the zoo. This area is quieter with some climbing elements and a large picnic table field.
