My kids and I love visiting this interesting little spot right in the heart of downtown. It's especially fun in the summer when you can enjoy the spraygrounds and the shallow pools. The sculptures you can climb on and other interactive exhibits are a bonus!

This is a very interesting place to see with an awesome atmosphere particularly at night while the lights are all on. Very nice artwork and sculptures to walk around and explore through the park. Great picture opportunity too. At night there are lots of colored lights to decorate the fountains and landscape.

I say it is okay. It has two blacks of sculptures that request that you do not climb on them or sit on them and because this is St. Louis, that means that the stay at home moms just chat with each other and don't pay attention as their little 2 year old's try to climb on things that if... More

The garden has lots of different statues in a relativelz small area. In a warm day, all the kids plays around the water fountains. Cool!

A short walk beyond the Old Courthouse brings you to the City Garden. On a hot day there are several creative fountains for the kiddies (and shame-free adults) to splash in. Put this on your route for a downtown walk through St Louis.

We were looking for an inexpensive activity to do after dinner with two kids (elementary and middle school age). So, at the suggestion of the hotel concierge, we walked 4 blocks to the park not really knowing what to expect. Arriving at City Garden, we were pleasantly surprised by the creativity, beautiful artistry, and clever designs displayed throughout the park.... More

It was a beautiful walk the length of 3 blocks. Fountains, sculptures and flowers made it very romantic. It was very clean and well maintained.

I took my two toddlers and my 10 year old niece to City Garden one hot, summer morning. The place was already filled with people. Kids could spend all day there. The splash pad is a blast and the kids love running through the fountains. The two shallow "pools" are also a big hit. And it's all FREE!

We stumbled upon the park while walking around downtown. Didn't even know it existed! It was a pleasant surprise. Definitely a must for families with young children. Water features were filled with kids! Art was fun and gardens were gorgeous. My teenagers were bored, so we didn't stay long.
