  • Great green space in the center of downtown, with some really cool art pieces...great spot to walk around or have the kids play in the park.  more »
  • Took a walk there during a conference break. Discovered not only the garden but food trucks. We purchased our food sat by water/closed pool and enjoyed the sights. Then, took a walk around. Only recom...  more »
  • The "controversy" seems to be over whether it has been "over designed", and as a garden designer I was very curious about that charge. My husband and I differed. I thought it was; he didn't. I think t...  more »

  • This is a wonderful place to visit day or night, anytime of the year. Indigenous plants, outdoor art installations, huge-screen movies, and water features make the perfect place to just enjoy being alive in St.Louis. One note of caution for locals -- loads of tourists (with children) often abound. Still, an enjoyable place and you can walk to lots of City of St. Louis businesses from here.
  • Perfect park for adults and kids. As a nanny, I hit almost every park and attraction in the city, city garden is easily my favorite. I start our park visit by grabbing some kaldis coffee then bringing my 5, 3, and 1 year old to the splash pad. The trees provide shade and a cool breeze so you're not roasting as you watch. The splash pad is perfect for all ages, even the baby! Once I get the babe dry and down for a nap, the big boys go to the waterfall pool. Even my short three year old can stand very safely in all depths of the pool (with occasional reminds to be carful on the rocks). With life guards and security, I feel very comfortable watching over the baby while the big kids independently play. It's so refreshing being in the city, people watching, and enjoying coffee all while my kids have a great time as well. BTW did I mention it's FREE? 100% recommend this place. You'll all love it! My only wish is that they had a bathroom :( that being said, the kaldis bathroom can fit two fighting boys and a stroller easily!
  • I love the water for the kids to play in I mean my brother and sister love this place and I do too, because of the beautify statchuse in the park I think you should visit their go their sometimes.
  • Beautiful rest area in the middle of the city. Fountain, place for kids to splash around
  • Fantastic spot in downtown. Kid friendly sculptures and small pools. Nice greenery for downtown and the maintenance staff does an awesome job keeping the grounds clean and do great seasonal additions.
