Early evening

We happened to notice the Pinocchio and were drawn in. It was so interesting to see the art in a public garden. Definitely something to see while in St. Louis.

Guess the time of year we went had something to do with the scenery, it was ok, didn't spend a lot of time here. Walked around, looked at statues, didn't keep son's attention very long!

St Louis' City Garden was perhaps the most unexpected surprise on a recent visit. The well-landscaped urban oasis masterfully blends art, landscape, and architecture with one another as high-rises cavern overhead. The well-planned and executed City Garden has a variety of paths, water features, diverse plantings, and artwork which yields several different and unique experiences for the viewer/visitor. To complement... More

i guess this place is usually filled with kids, but I was there as part of an all-adult night and I have never seen so many people 40, 50, 60 and older climbing, crawling, sliding and generally horsing around. Absolutely unlike any other place I have ever seen. Just think what the love child of the Sagrada Familia Cathedral in... More

It's an attempt to have a green space in downtown. The art was ok. I don't think I would go out of my way to make a visit.

Enjoyed the sculptures and the water features in the garden. Unfortunately when we were there most of the water features to play in were closed. Great place to see the arch as well!

City Garden in St Louis has been totally rebuilt and is very attractive and inviting. This is a great place to visit on a hot day.

Fun place to spend some time, when you are downtown. Nice green space with enough space to relax and run around a bit

I love art, even if I don't always understand it. This appealed to me, not just because there was lots of interesting and thought-provoking art, but because I like the challenge of the hunt. Pick up the free map near the restaurant at one corner of the park, and see how many of the pieces of art you can find.... More
