Steinberg Skating Rink is open for ice skating from November through March, depending on the weather. The hours vary. Entrance fees are charged only for skating, so the concession area can be for joggers, bikers, and those who want to watch the skaters but not participate. Skating fees are $4 for adults, and $3 for children 12 and under. The fee is for each skating session. Skate rental is $1. The rink has an indoor cafe area with food and drinks.
The hayrides are offered on Friday and Saturday nights starting in October and ending around the first week of December. Reservations are required. It is a 45 minute ride that ends in a bonfire, so bring your own hot dogs and marshmellows.
Turtle Playground features three large and four small turtles. It is at Oakland and Tamm avenues, on the south side of Forest Park. Visitors will find a snapping turtle, a soft-shelled turtle, a red-eared slider, a Mississippi map, three box turtles, and a stinkpot along with a snake that is curled to form an area for sitting and a serpent taking a bite out of the Highway 40 overpass. Seven large eggs, three with emerging turtles, adorn the sitting area, all made of conrete. The playground is open from dawn until 10pm daily. The Forest Park Golf Course has 18 holes, is 6024 yards, 71 par.
Check out the schedule at The Muny and take in a show. I have made separate entries for the zoo and the Science Center.

The park is open to everyone and there were several large family groups with their tables, chairs, vollyball nets and grills enjoying the grass and shade within the park. There were also many joggers, skaters and walkers even though it was in the high 90's. There were paddle boats for rent in one of the ponds and some of the most beautiful fountains
I have ever seen. This is what a park should be, free, open and accessable to everyone. It is also very confusing to drive through which is how we got to see so much of it while traveling between museums. Thank you to the skater who gave us directions.
