Loop Trolley

— Forest Park MetroLink —

This station serves as a connector on the Loop Trolley system, taking passengers directly over the MetroLink light rail system. Here at Forest Park and DeBaliviere, visitors can connect to both the Red and Blue Line trains, traveling as far east as Scott Air Force Base in Shiloh, Illinois, or west to Lambert International Airport and Shrewsbury, Missouri.

At the time of the 1904 World's Fair, this area was a popular arrival point for tourists, leading directly to the main entrance. The Smith family, forever memorialized in MGM's 1944 movie musical "Meet Me In St. Louis" would have passed this junction on their way to the fairgrounds from their home at 5135 Kensington Avenue.
