This is a great urban park that uses art to engage citizens, both adults and children and it is totally free to walk through. St Louis has about 20 pieces of sculpture art that it has used to create this downtown experience just west of the Arch and Courthouse. Going west from the Arch, St Louis had created a park mall through the city but originally left as green space. Two of the those bulks were converted to this Sculpture Garden that were beautiful, entertaining and active. My wife and I really enjoyed this and wish we had had more time to visit. I highly recommend you plan to stop by. Check out the pictures of the art.

This park is about 1 block wide and several city blocks long. If you want to walk to the other side of town, strolling through this park is the best way. Over a dozen large art pieces - some modern, some topiary, some digital, some water based. Very well tended and groomed, we throughly enjoyed walking the entire length.

City Garden is like an art exhibit for those that like art, for those that like whimsey, for kids that want to touch the art, and for those who want to walk around in downtown St. Louis. 24 sculptures plus water items and some garden areas. It makes my heart happy to be there.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

We decided to take about 30 minutes to walk around citypark while in St. Louis. It was a very nice visit, not much time, some great sculptures. We really enjoyed it.

Parked on Market Street, paid a meter, $2 for an hour.
