I enjoyed the sculptures here. I was a bit put off by the people letting their kids climb all over it, especially with the signs asking them not to. The signage in the park was random. Some exhibits had good signs while others were missing or incoherent. There was some emphasis on the nature aspects of the park, but the... More

To be honest, nothing really fancy, but a great place to take younger kids and grand kids to run, get exercise, and use their imaginations. Grampa, "Is it a giant bug, airplane, or a space ship?" Very odd, unusual and large sculptures. I have to admit, you'll be wondering what the artist was thinking or trying to create. Excellent hiking... More

This park is great with fun sculptures and a very nice trail to hike if you want some nice exercise and time in nature. Just beautiful!

...for the life of me I can't figure out how some of what I saw designated as "sculpture" in this park was art. One..."piece of art" was a chain (a simple silver chain, nothing else) strung between two trees. That's it. Art? Somewhere an "artist" is chuckling to himself at the gullibility of Laumeier's staff. Also, there was another "work"... More

I was last in Laumeirer Sculpture over 10 years ago.The trails are still in very good shape and the trees are trimmed back and the lawns well kept. The sculptures are still great. A tip though I came on the hottest day so far in 2014 in the late afternoon with the humidity added to the 97+ degree temperature it... More

Nice little hike to see some sculptures. My 2 year old walked most of the trail, it's a little rough in spots but not a difficult hike.

Once I wrote a review of the Missouri Botanical Garden, calling it the "Crown Jewel" of St. Louis. This place is close behind. It is a huge reservation in a nice suburb, studded with mostly excellent works of sculpture. I am an enthusiastic viewer of birdlife and it is outstanding here. I come here as much as I can, and...

I went spur of the moment for cakeway to the west and decided to walk around. Beautiful sculptures and I noticed plenty of trails. Free attraction worth your time if you've never been.

(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.
