Just a couple of miles west of downtown St. Louis sits the Forest Park Southeast
neighborhood, which takes its name from the 1,371-acre park right on its boundary. Forest Park, one of the largest urban parks in the country, serves as the cultural and emotional heart of the city, putting renters within walking distance of several museums, the St. Louis Zoo, and the city's opera company. The park also features opportunities for golf and all sorts of team sports.
Modern apartment buildings mix beautifully with historical buildings in Forest Park Southeast. Here, locals congregate at the Grove for nightlife and shopping. Popular annual events include the Grove Fest, a music festival featuring a wide selection of music genres.
