This was a lovely park with water features, trees, flowers, and sculptures. It was a sunny warm fall day when I walked around. There were pumpkins on many of the walls and many of the flowers were still in bloom. I wish I had more time to enjoy the garden.

This is a very nice and free sculpture garden with a lot of different sculptures including fountains. A lot of places to sit and enjoy the area. Very close to the old court house.

This is the neatest spot in downtown St. Louis! A variety of cool art sculptures make this park so interesting. Walking around offers great views of the arch and downtown St. Louis. Something very tranquil and serene about City Garden! There is on street parking next to the park and best of all its free!

This is just what the city needed - a place to display artists' work as well as Mother Nature's. You can see every type of tree native to Missouri. Kids should bring swim suits in the summer. The fountains and wading pool are refreshing. Stop by for an evening visit to see the fountains with changing colored lights.

A beautiful oasis in downtown St; Louis with multiple interesting sculptures that everybody can enjoy both old and young at heart. There are a lot of water features that kids can enjoy. So if you're in the downtown area this is a great area place to take your family. And the best part of all is that it is free.

We walked through this on our way to the Arch. It was beautifully landscaped and the splash pads were enjoyable to watch. What a beautiful addition to the downtown area!
