It's a section of road that is blocked off from traffic, where people can relax and listen to music or admire a variety of statues. (The day I was there a band composed of young teen musicians performed). It's about 3 blocks from Busch Stadium.

The bulbs and ornamental trees were in bloom, making for a great display! But the most interesting things were the statuary and art displays scattered throughout the gardens. Amazing pieces that really made us stop and ponder them. Beautiful waterfall and fountain! Even the young kids had a great time interacting with the displays.

The pod is tiny, and rides a lot like a ferris wheel car. There is a glass door in the door of the car, so you can look out into the "works" of the arch. It takes less then 4 minutes to get to the top. The windows are small, but the view is nice. Then you queue up to... More

I love that it's all outdoors and that there are quite a lot of pieces to see. It was very windy while I was there, but it didn't stop me from walking around and enjoying the art =)

City Garden is a gem; a fun place to walk and discover and interact with the art. So many great places to pose for photos, with fun art and unexpected things at every turn. Our daughter loved touching and climbing on all the sculptures and hopping across the main fountain from rock to rock. Every city needs such a beautiful... More

Friends, seek out this little oasis in the middle of our downtown jungle. There is something for everyone. Green space featuring indigenous plant life, a water feature, sculptures, interactive fun space for kids and a restaurant with inside and al fresco dining experiences. Get there. You will be glad that you did. John Snipes.

There were certain elements here that were unique and really cool, while many were more on the average side. However, there were lots of fun pics to be had, silly things to do, fountains to play in (if I hadn't been wearing my new Easter dress!) and romantic spots for a kiss or two. It's a great little garden in... More

We enjoyed the sites in the City Garden. We walked around in the beautiful weather we fortunate to have. The buildings, history, and architecture were interesting to both us and our kids. Loved our long weekend trip to St Louis.

This place is perfectly designed to fit a modern and creative park in the middle of an urban environment. Go on a summer day and there are even fountains and ponds to splash around in, especially for the kids!

there are some sculptures(20-ish/), but the garden is small. We were there too early in the season, so there is no water fountain yet. The view of ARCH from the garden is wonderful.
