“Lovely garden in an urban setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

The garden is a couple of blocks long with plenty of water fountains and pleasing plants. It's family friendly as well as romantic. We spent time at night there running through the lit fountains as well as the day. Currently there are some "Occupy Wall Street" type protesters setting up there - tents and all in one section of it. It did detract from the garden but we were still able to enjoy the space.

The "main" water fountain was dyed red for the world series and has a lovely backdrop of old capital/courthouse and the arch.

Plan to spend 30 minutes - two hours depending if you want to linger or splash in the water.

“A nice surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2011

We took a walk to see Bush Stadium and decided to head to Union Station and along the way we encountered the city garden. What a nice surprise, the sculptures were nice and the water fountain was neat and at night it lights up in differnent colors and forms.
