Modern sculpture and ponds covering two downtown blocks. Make sure to pick up a flyer in one of the boxes in the garden so that you can learn more about what you are seeing.

If you have some time stop by the City Garden and see the sculptures. Its fun for kids as you can play on the sculptures, have picnic or play in the 3 splash pads. There are food trucks there for lunch on fridays. Grab some lunch and let the kids run wild in the water. We stop there after visiting... More

Such a nice spot to visit! In the midst of all the traffic lights and tall buildings, here sits a beautiful park. Relax, walk, play in the water, check out the sculptures - it's wonderful!

Bunnies, squirrels, artwork and lots of area to sit and relax throughout the several blocks. Enjoyed the serenity in the evenings.

Yes it is only 2 blocks but the pieces are so well done. It took my family about 11/2 hrs to get through. With young children we spent as much time looking as we did discussing the pieces. It's nice to look at art without the confines of the museum rules and get up close with the pieces for kids.

I suppose it's a nice break from the commercial buildings downtown, but certainly not an attraction worth seeking out.

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!
