(full disclosure: this place was one of my favourite haunts as an adolescent) Just a truly original place to do park stuff. We used to organise some epic ultimate frisbee matches in front of the giant red sculpture which is a portal to parallel universes.

I saw this on Pinterest while planning our visit to St Louis. We decided to check it out, since it's free. The grounds are lovely, there are hiking trails and clean restrooms, and the sculptures are pretty neat.

We strolled through the park and enjoyed the mix of sculptures from eyes to big cannon looking metal. Very dog friendly!

We went for concerts and to enjoy the sculptures. Take a picnic and have a great time! be sure to bring drinks if it's summer as St. Louis summers are toasty - but the shaded areas are 10 degrees cooler and breezier than the brick houses of the city!

This involves walking! I say this because I read a number of complaints from reviewers about the walk. The sculptures are set in a large expansive clearing and set up occasionally along the walking trails. There are a number of trails for you to explore. The trails are forested, so a good option on a hot sunny day. The trails... More

We went to Laumeier Sculpture Park on a beautiful weekend day and let me say "wow" is my reaction to this place. I had wanted to visit for awhile and I'm sorry I haven't visited sooner. I guess it's a little off the beaten path of the other St. Louis attractions (but it's well worth the visit if you're coming... More

Ok first off I am not an art person. I don't know what I was suppose to be looking at with most of the sculptures here. On the other hand it is a very nice park with lots and lots of walking trails which would be great to bring a picnic and kill a couple hours. It is a bit... More

To my families dismay, I am a sucker for outlandish attractions. When visiting someplace I check out roadsideamerica.com and look for the best unique attractions. This was near the top of the list. There are many sculptures of many variety. And everyone had a lot of fun taking a lot of fun pictures. I cannot say you should go out... More

It's a wonderful place to take a walk or short hike while experiencing the art and sculpture. The pieces are not so close together that you feel overwhelmed, nor are they so far apart that you can't experience the majority of them in a few hours. The artists and materials are so varied that if one sculpture isn't to your... More

Perfect free activity for a couple hours on a nice day. We did not do this, but I would recommend a picnic. Even if you do not necessarily enjoy art, go and try something a little different than you might otherwise do. Nice walk on mainly flat ground, there are area to hike "off path" to some additional sculptures, but... More
