Discovered this place by accident, and I think it is pretty new. A few blocks from the ballpark, it has the traditional spouts from the ground, but it also has a couple of pools that the kids can actually get into. One for under 5s and one for the older kids. Both pools are monitored by staff, not quite lifeguards... More

This really smallish park manages to pack in a surprising number of high quality sculptures. There are also splash pads and plantings, so it's not just walking through a jam-packed place with sculptures. Kids can climb on all of it. There's a restaurant as well; all in all, definitely take the time to go there if you're going to be... More

One an especially hot summer day, it was a nice stop at this urban oasis which combined beautiful landscaping, sculpture and water. The Spray Plaza was in full force and children were happily darting around to escape the heat. The art features modern sculptures with information about the artists. Most in not all the plants emphasizes the native Missouri trees,... More

I can not even begin to tell anyone what an awesome place this is! I wish we had one in our hometown! The splash pad was a huge hit with our six year. We went several times during our stay. We even went at night and enjoyed the splash pad being lighted! They have security at night which put us... More

The City Garden another free venue is wonderful for a stroll adult only or bring the whole family. There are beautiful gardens with native plants and flowers and intermingled amongst these are sculptures and water-fun for the children, fountains little wading pool and waterfall walls. It is about 4/5 blocks long and about 3 blocks west of the Gateway Arch... More

There are a collection of statues in the city garden. They are pretty average statues but still make good pictures! There is a small water park here, that you or your kids will enjoy! The whole thing is pretty small.

Love the way they have the garden and statues dispersed throughout the park. Definite must see especially if you have kids. But relaxing for adults as well. Would recommend.

We love coming here in the summer to let the kids play. There is a wading pool and a fountain area for the kids to play in. Metered Parking all around that accepts credit cards. Free exhibit!

It's really cool when you find a gem like this park right in the center of a busting city! Lots of green and well maintained plantings, fun and interesting sculptures (Pinocchio was my favorite), a waterfall and fountains. Great place to walk and sit and nice to cool down after a hot day

It brings me joy to watch the young and the young at heart play in the water features. This is good clean free fun in the middle of downtown. The garden part is nice too. My only complaint is that there are no real public restrooms.
