I didn't even know this was an attraction... we just happened to stumble across it lol! It's a very "artsie" place. They got a few cool things however I wouldn't go out of my way to see it!

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!

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.
