We walked here from our hotel one morning while trying to kill some time. The kids and I had fun admiring and analyzing all the works of art. The splash fountains weren't on in October but I imagine it would be popular in summer. The step on chime piece was fun too.

Enjoyed wandering around this park. Be sure to grab one of the maps available as that will explain exactly what you are looking at when seeing the interesting sculptures. The water features were nice and the children in the area seemed to be enjoying themselves. There are nice little spots to sit and enjoy the scenery.

Let my kids hang out in the water features before our 5 hour trip home. Wonderful little treasure of art, peace and family fun. Great place to wind down. If you have an hour and want to see something in the city beyond the normal tourist stuff, highly recommend. Within a couple of blocks from the arch and the stadium.

We took a walk through city garden as we were waiting for our tour of Busch Stadium. There were numerous sculptures and pieces of art to walk around and look at as well as the flower gardens on the 2 city blocks that it encompasses. The grounds were well manicured and maintained. There were several small reflection ponds and water... More

The sculptures are so interesting and unique. You can pick up a free map explaining the sculptures. There are a lot of photo ops here. Make sure you sit on one of the rabbits!!

Beautiful park and sculpture garden. Kids have water spouts and a splash pool. There's a cafe for those who want to sit in the shade and eat.

The gorgeous sculptures and pretty grounds are only half the reason to visit this park. On the hot July day we visited, the two water features were filled with children cooling off. It is obviously a family fun spot for locals and tourists alike. Don't miss it!

Really loved this place. 10 & 13 year old had fun playing in fountains. Husband and teenager had fun pokemon hunting ( several stops and a gym in the park). Very pretty with lovely landscaping. Nice touch was an ice cream truck near bye that was inexpensive too. We were only there 45 minutes and saw it all. Great quick... More

An oasis in downtown St. Louis. Paths zigzag through flowers and sculpture. I follow my ears to find a band playing and listeners singing along. Yea for the shade to sit and listen. Come to STL and experience this ever changing place.
