Today, one of St. Louis’ most beloved attractions turns 140 years old.  However, when we celebrate the origin of Forest Park, we should also celebrate the beginnings of O’Fallon Park and Carondelet Park because it was only with a promise to build the other two that St. Louis residents agreed to pass the ballot measure necessary to build the city’s now preeminent greenspace.

I’ve written pretty extensively about all three parks for Photo Flood Saint Louis (click links above), so instead of rehashing the parks’ histories, I thought that it would be more fun to challenge how well my STL readers know each one.  In the comments below, challenge yourself, and identify which park goes with which image (ie. Image 1=xxxx Park).  Now, let’s see how well you know your city parks….
