  • I LOVE the city garden. While its a year round treasure its especially nice in the summer time. It has a large fountain display that changes color and my kids love playing in it. They sculptures are fun and make great photo opportunities. Pleas they have security guards on staff even well into the evening hours. So its a safe bet any time before 10PM.
  • Love this park! Visit here on a weekday afternoon and you'll find a great mix of people. Parents and school groups for the sculptures and wading pool, business folks having lunch at the food trucks usually found there during the lunch hour, as well as local and out of town visitors. Every time I have been to the garden there have been security guards and wading pool attendants (seasonally). They also offer self guided tours and a downloadable app as a guide. I would and do highly recommend this as a stop for visitors!
  • Bravo, St. Louis! This has transformed downtown St. Louis and is a brilliant part of the land use plan to highlight the amenities downtown. Wonderful sculptures (how about a pink tux with no head?) are highlighted by water features, landscaping and top notch site amenities. Important artists are represented here in delightful ways and the view of the arch in the distance is the icing on the cake!
  • It's beautiful and fun for all ages. Easy parking, live music, great place to have a picnic and play in the water! The view of the surrounding city is spectacular! Good Job St. Louis and Thank you. Oh and security guards are very kind and it's safe.
  • Awesome place to visit. Kid friendly sculpture park. Light up fountains to play in. Wading area and more. Lots of fun.
