The City Gardens is a pretty place. Several nice pieces of artwork.
The "dancing fountain" was fun to watch.

Discovered this place just last week after seeing a commercial on tv. Being new to the area, we have been looking for place to go downtown to better get to know the city. This place was perfect. It is basicaly a sculpture garden with a giant section of bubblers in the middle. The sculptures were great - the girls loved climbing on the rabbits (don't worry ... climbing is encourage!). The bubblers are great and there was plenty of them so even if the place is busy, there is room for all. You can see the arch from the garden and busch stadium is pretty close as well - great stop while site seeing downtown!

A great place to take your lunch or bring the kids down to run around all of the art and water features. This has been a wonderful addition to the downtown landscape. Even great when the light effects are on at night. There is even a restaurant there, which I have not yet eaten at.

The city garden is a short walk from the downtown hotel area. It is a collection of architechual works that are both beautiful and fun.

There are many great photo opportunities, as the Arch is in the background. Plan to spend 1-1.5 hours there. The fun there is what you make it, nothing to buy or be entertained by.

It is new, clean and worth your time to see. But once you have done it, you probably won't be back.

It is the perfect time waster if you bought your Arch tickets the day you arrived and cant go up for a couple of hours, it's only a short walk (less than 1 mile)
