This is a great park to stroll through and take pics. It has lots of interesting and whimsical art throughout. Kids would probably love hanging out there, but nice to enjoy on your own for some quiet time too.

Nice park with water fountains that the GrandKids loved playing in. Sculptures are interesting and again fun to have the Grandkids climb on. I hope that's not against the rules. Oh well.

Tucked in a peaceful section of downtown St. Louis with the arch in full view, the City Garden offers greenery, art, and lots of water fun. Beautiful art installations and sculptures encourage artistic... More

What a surprising place. We took lots of goofy pictures of each other. It was a chilly day, so we didn't stay long.

I did an early morning walk through as i ate my yummy doughnut! I'm a single female and felt safe walking through the area with no concerns. Very clean and cool place.

I couldn't believe how much the kids even like it. If you have smart devices there is an app that kids liked with it. The... More

I take my daughter here during the warmer months around evening time when the lights make it look almost magical. Kids love running around, climbing, and getting wet in the sprinklers. My daughters favorite is a part of the ground that plays music when you step on it.

Ambling our way back from the arch we stumbled across this delightful park. Full of sculptures for all to see including children's characters - amazing to see wild rabbits running around the rabbit statues. A place to rest and reflect in the shade.
