Fun in the sun

Sculptures were nice, but the kids especially liked the free water fun! There were waterfalls, a small pool and water jets the kids could run through. It was very clean.

I wish I lived and worked in the area so that I could come back during my lunch hour and enjoy the city garden. I had fun looking at the different modern art pieces amidst the garden with beautiful flowers. The restaurant had very friendly staff and the peanut butter dessert was a piece of heaven!

An urban oasis filled with fun public art with a vibrant feel due to the large amount of children and their families utilizing the fountains and splash pool. Just stroll thru or relax and take in the action, you'll forget you are in the middle of downtown and mere blocks from the Arch. Other cities should study the park.

Children are welcome to frolic in the beautiful fountains and even climb on some of the sculptures here! City employees are paid to supervise. This park is a lovely place for city dwellers and tourists to beat the heat while enjoying some outdoor artwork.

What a great park in the middle of downtown St Louis. The outdoor sculptures offer frivolity for all ages along with a free garden on flat terrain.

Discovering this park quite by accident was actually one of our favorite experiences in St. Louis. It was the perfect encounter on our stroll through what is otherwise a somewhat lackluster downtown area: A well-maintained 2-block oasis, with whimsical sculptures. Okay, so it may not be worth going terribly out of your way to see, but it is definitely walk-able... More

Not a garden you might seek out, but you should. A range of settings and art of all scales including a head you can go inside. Pools, falls and fountains would make this a great respite from the gray offices that surround it. Security on site make this place clean and safe.

We stopped by to check out the water features after a long morning at Grant's Farm. Every inch is beautiful, well kept and worth the stop. There were even attendants at the 2 main water features. We walked down the block to Kiener Plaza...not so much.

When our other plans got upended, we took a walk from our hotel down to the City Garden. Had a splash pool for the kids, but nothing special.
