At 1,300 acres, Forest Park is one of the largest parks set in an urban environment in the U.S., surpassing New York's Central Park by 500 acres. Much like other parks in urban cores around the country, heavy use combined with decades of deferred maintenance took their toll; by the 1980s, Forest Park was in an alarming state of decline. Forest Park Forever was created in 1986 as a private, nonprofit organization to work in partnership with the City of St. Louis to reverse this downward trend and strive to make Forest Park a premier American urban park once again.
Forest Park Forever was KMOV’s first 4 Degree Guarantee Charity in October of 2014. And, KMOV produces a documentary on the park every year to inspire viewer donations.
