SLEDDING ON ART HILL
After every big snow fall,
St. Louisans gather on Art Hill,
directly beneath the famous St. Louis Art Museum,
for the best sledding in Forest Park.
From this vantage point, back in 1904,
you could view most of the World's Fair exhibits
at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition.
The Art Museum building is the only remaining
structure from the massive World's Fair exposition,
which took 3 years to construct.
The Fair's lagoons and lakes still remain,
and are prominent features in today's Forest Park.
The long snow-packed slope of Art Hill is ideal for
sledders of every age, with fire pits ablaze at the top
to warm frozen feet and fingers.
