We saw bits of this park on the cab ride home last night. I wanted to go back but we didn't know what it was. Walking around today we came upon it. City Park. It is a beautiful welcoming green park. Full of sculptures and pools. (that you can stand in!) We watched the kids play in the squirt garden,... More

The giant rabbit was such a pleasant surprise and the water features. A mixture of modern art and contemporary - quite refreshing.

Walked through it to get to a store. It's a very nice area to walk through and makes walking through the area more pleasant, I wouldn't say it's worth a special trip though

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.
