Public art and nature come together at . In the 1.2 hectare (2.9 acre) park, walk among native Missouri trees, shrubs, grasses, groundcovers, and wildflowers. You also can contemplate about two dozen sculptures made of bronze, aluminum, fiberglass, and steel that depict subjects such as a boat sitting in water, rabbits, a group of women with a parakeet, and Pinocchio. Check out the spray plaza with its 102 fountains and the 55 m (180 ft) pool with its 1.8 m (6 ft) waterfall. Download the park's app or an MP3 version of the guided tour it provides.

  • Cute Park in city couple blocks from river. Park is filled with many statues . Nice place to sit and relax your feet for awhile . Child seemed to enjoy Park very much . 
  • Picturesque place to take in an array of artistic talent displayed in a park like setting. Selfie opportunities galore! 
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • The only reason I didn't give Citygarden a 5-star rating is because it was kind of small. The whole thing can be walked in an hour or less. The art is well kept and interesting and the map (or the app if you want to download it) has good descriptions. The whole place has a modern feel, including the cafe, Death in the Afternoon. If you need to use the restroom, the cafe only lets people use it if they buy something, but otherwise the park is free. The garden areas are also well kept, and some of the trees and flowers are labeled but not all. The whole place is very accessible, with clear pathways and ramps for people who can't use stairs. This park is amazing for kids. The shallow pools are available to swim in and there are spaces that are clearly designed for children. I would feel safe sitting down and watching my kids run around for a bit. The place feels very separate from the surrounding city, even though it is downtown.
  • It was so much fun! We brought our three boys age 10, 11 & 12. They had a great time! The woman on duty, Carmella Perkins was amazing! She kept a close eye on the children and had a positive attitude when correcting some bad behavior. Thank you Carmella
  • This is a wonderful place to go alone, with your spouse, or with your entire family. There are beautiful sculptures and waterfalls and water areas to physically go in or to just look at. It is a few blocks long and there a lot of neat buildings around it to sight see!
