The Saint Louis Zoological Park in Forest Park in St. Louis, Missouri is recognized as a leading zoo in animal management, research, conservation, and education.
The 1904 St. Louis World's Fair is credited for the birth of the St. Louis Zoo. The Fair brought the world's attention to St. Louis and Forest Park. The Smithsonian Institution constructed a walk-through bird cage for the World's Fair. Ten days after the World's Fair closed, the citizens of St. Louis chose to buy the 1904 World's Fair Flight Cage for $3,500, rather than have it dismantled and returned to Washington, D.C. The St. Louis Zoo was born.

We hope we did St.Louis and the Arch justice, it's just incredible. Look for the stadium in the background of this drone film... Go Cardinals!
