This area was done in a very appealing and calming way. Right smack dab in the middle of the city. Did I mention it is free? Something to experience in every season but the kids love to run through the fountains in the summer.

It was not really a destination, but if downtown one should be sure to take the time to cut through the park to see some interesting public art

Enjoyed this tour very much. The view from the top was awesome. I'm a little clostaphobic so getting in the capsule to ride up was a little scary at first, but the ride up is pretty fast and I did just fine, so don't let that scare you from going. We purchased tickets at the Hotel the day before so... More

Our whole family enjoyed walking around and exploring this cool sculpture garden. Very interesting art sculptures and great for taking photos. My teens really enjoyed all of the giant pieces of art.

It is a nice walk through a few blocks in the heart of downtown. It has rotating exhibits, a line of food trucks along the Southern side and during the summer, it has some water jets which shoot water upwards for kids to play in.

I lived downtown and used to walk through this park all the time! I love it. The fountains, the sculptures, it is adorable. Kids also love it and it is a great side attraction if you are walking down Market to the Arch.

On a nice day this lovely two block stretch of green space, art and water effects offers some of the best downtown people watching. As a bonus, there are often food truck parked on Market Street during lunch.

This amazing place has all kinds of interactive fascinating sculptures and other kinds of art exhibits. Children can climb and play and enjoy the splash park aspect of this three block long feast for the senses. Adults can learn about the artworks and join their kids in the experiencing what they see with more than just their eyes. I love... More

A very nice afternoon walk, get a map of it and find the sculptures or statues. Kids will love in summer with the ground shooting sprinklers.

I think this was the cutest idea! It's art you can play on. Even the water show area is meant for kids to play in. Conveniently located. Beautiful!
