“Yuck”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

Smells, dirty and nothing to see!!! Kind of sketchy area. Was with a friend seeing the city and disappointed in the plaza as I had previously starred it on my tripadvisor.

“Beautiful plaza, fountains, and gardens!”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

This is a beautiful plaza in the heart of St. Louis! It's about a 2-3 block walk to the Gateway Arch and about 2 blocks to Busch stadium. Great place to take some photos! The fountains and gardens are beautiful! During hot weather you will see children playing in the fountains.

I would have given this location 5 stars, minus the gathering of homeless people. They didn't bother us, but there were people with their sleeping bags laid out on the lawn, and another guy drinking beer while he was doing his laundry in the fountain!

“clean it up”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

There was trash in the fountain and people trying to panhandle you. Sure you get a great view of the Arch but they need to clean it up!

“The Sculpture Garden approach to the Gateway Arch.”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

This makes an interesting walk to the Gateway Arch, so is certainly worth walking through just for that. The statues make great photo opportunities...don’t miss getting into the big bronze head and looking out through the eyes...this has to be one of your most unusual photos. The Plazza itself unfortunately seems a place for drop outs to sleep so though our early morning walk was fine (just smelt a bit like a toilet)...late at night could be a different matter.

“Great view of Arc”
Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

Love the view of arc from here and its a relaxing area. Also not crowded when we were there. Was a cool place to hangout the fountain is also good. can see lot of kids playing through the place and its fun to sit and relax for some time. You can find some restaurants nearby if you want to grab a bite. It was a cool experience and a must visit place of you visit Arc.. Loved it and recommend to all travelers who visit St. Louis...
