Always looking for a place to relieve yourself on that afternoon run in Forest Park? Look no further.

As workers put the final touches on side-by-side hard and soft exercise paths ringing Forest Park, another hearing will be held tonight on the amenities that will be added along the paths.

Forest Park officials say they've received more than 600 suggestions on what to include. Forest Park Forever executive director Leslie Hoffarth said that they include more restrooms, water fountains and mile markers - and perhaps grouping them together.

"To have a spot to meet, where you would find a restroom, benches, drinking fountains, bicycle racks, everything you might need in one spot and some type of open area for people to gather in, is something there was a lot of interest in," Hoffarth said.

Tonight's meeting will be held at 7 o'clock at the Dennis and Judith Jones Forest Park Visitor and Education Center.
