City Garden is a quick walk from the Arch. Maps of the artwork made the whole experience more meaningful. Great variety in a small space.

I loved the City Garden. It is hard to believe how peaceful it is since it is located in the heart of the city. If I worked downtown, I would bring my lunch and eat there everyday.

This is a small, lovely oasis in the middle of downtown St. Louis. Lots of awesome sculptures (as well as some public video art) to admire, local dog walkers abound - this is basically the downtown dog park - and in the summer there are kids swimming in the fountain and playing in the splash garden. I feel exceptionally lucky... More

A walk, purposeful or passing time, should always divert through City Garden. It's a well kept, interesting diversion from the streets that surround it. Large art, water features, flower and shrub plantings contribute to this space as a inviting retreat to visitors and residents.

My son and I happened upon this park when we strolling around the city. The park is inviting and sculptures are interesting. This place is especially great for kids. Look-touch-play! There are even water features to play in. It even has a great view of the Arch.

The City Garden is near the Old Capital building and Busch Stadium. It's worth a walk through to see the sculptures. There is also a shooting water fountain in which kids can play in on hot days. Our daughter loved running through it and cooling off.

Nice setting for families and solo individuals in the downtown area. We need more places like this to relax and take your mind at ease at other metropolitan cities.

Totally surprised by the beautiful setting and the amazing art on display at City Garden. And how well kept it is.......no graffiti, no defacing of public property, no destruction of the natural environment. WTG St. Louis! Very pleasant visit. A must see while in St. Louis!

This was recommended by our hotel to walk through as we had a few hours to hang out one afternoon. Its a lovely park (couple of blocks long) with some very interesting sculptures including kinetic movement. Our 9 year old loved it. They have a wonderful fountain and the kids can play in and our kid had a great time... More
