Treat yourself!! Interesting sculpture in a fantastic setting of native plants right in the middle of downtown. Give yourself plenty of time -- it's two blocks long but lots of eye candy can easily take more than an hour to stroll. And ... all FREE!!

Cool park. Very neat little park among the hustle bustle of downtown. Cool at night with the light show. Would have been nice during the day as well with the water garden and sculptures.

This green space is amazing! Public art everywhere, trees, grass, benches...a perfect place to wander and enjoy the art, read a book, or grab a coffee and visit with friends! Definitely should be visited on your St Louis trips (only a few blocks from the arch too)

Picturesque place to take in an array of artistic talent displayed in a park like setting. Selfie opportunities galore!

City Garden is a wonderful gift to all who walk this way through blocks of imaginative sculptures. people climb, kids splash, make music with their feet and sit about talking. WE LOVE IT.

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
