A nice little park with some nice sculptures that kids and adults can have some fun with (they're meant to be interacted with). Plan to bring a change of clothes for anyone who lacks the willpower to resist playing with the fountains. Unfortunately we couldn't stay long enough to see the place lit up at night.

Love this little sculpture park - featuring ONLY art that you can interact with and climb on like a playground. Has water features, interesting plants and path, and is a great addition to the city. So great to have so much art available that children can actually touch and explore. What a great project.

Interesting sculptures, the fountain was off, some playground areas for small children, an enjoyable inner city green space. Just off market Street so not far from the Arch and various restaurants. Felt safe in my opinion during daylight hours.

We came upon this garden as we walked to the Arch and my grandsons loved it. Fun and unusual sculptures plus a park suitable for young children, as well as these nine year olds. We did come across a few homeless individuals but they were harmless. Very happy we stumbled upon this beauty.

We were in St Louis to visit the Gateway Arch and stumbled upon the garden walking back from breakfast (at the Rooster - another place definitely worth your time!). Even though we were there as things are turning fall-ish and the fountains are turned off, it was a beautiful space. I can imagine it would be completely fantastic with the addition of the water elements. Plants were identified (wonderful for us self-described plant nerds). The space is wide and relaxing, perfect for a leisurely stroll or just sitting and reading a book. Hats off to the landscapers and groundskeepers for their excellent work and for the little touches, like taking the time to make patterns in the gravel walkways. And hats off to a city that knows funding places like this is important to quality of life. Well done.

Nice park as you stroll downtown. The sculptures are all unique and so fun to view. This park and Kiener Plaza Park are the two best city parks. They line Chestnut and Market streets as you stroll downtown to see all the architectural buildings. So worth the stroll. The remaining parks (at least 4 more) like Serra Park aren’t as exciting, more just green area. Quite close to the arch, so stroll down to the river and check the arch out too.

Very full of plant life and greenery. I think it is a nice place for those that work downtown to go enjoy their lunchbreak. Lots of shade cover and places to sit and enjoy the view. We walked through on our way back from breakfast. Different art installations placed throughout.

Pretty, well-maintained green space in downtown St. Louis near multiple businesses, the old courthouse, and the Gateway Arch.

Several types of sculpture, mostly modern. The grass is lush! Tons of fountains and water features. Several photo ops.

Great place to take a break while touring, working, or just to relax. Right on one of the main drags, but I didn’t really notice noise because the trees and plants shielded me.

Not much parking, so if you find a good legal spot close, jump on it.

There are lots of statues and plants to see.

Paved sidewalks to get you around.

There was a security guard present, but not sure if that's the norm or just for the guys cleaning up the fallen trees from the tornado that came through.

There's places to sit down as well.

Even a wedding party was having photos taken so it's gotta be nice!

What a beautiful oasis in the middle of downtown St. Louis. We were so impressed with the flowers, trees, fountains, waterfall, and pools that cover three acres. There is a sculpture to admire every where you look. Don't miss the two rabbits. Jazz music plays as you stroll the pathways. There is a cafe (which we did not utilize) and no admission. A tip -- don't pay the meter on Market Street to park - drive around the block to Chestnut, where you might very well find free parking on the street.
