Love the way they have the garden and statues dispersed throughout the park. Definite must see especially if you have kids. But relaxing for adults as well. Would recommend.

There are a collection of statues in the city garden. They are pretty average statues but still make good pictures! There is a small water park here, that you or your kids will enjoy! The whole thing is pretty small.

We love coming here in the summer to let the kids play. There is a wading pool and a fountain area for the kids to play in. Metered Parking all around that accepts credit cards. Free exhibit!

It's really cool when you find a gem like this park right in the center of a busting city! Lots of green and well maintained plantings, fun and interesting sculptures (Pinocchio was my favorite), a waterfall and fountains. Great place to walk and sit and nice to cool down after a hot day

It brings me joy to watch the young and the young at heart play in the water features. This is good clean free fun in the middle of downtown. The garden part is nice too. My only complaint is that there are no real public restrooms.

We happened upon this park/garden by accident. What a delightful surprise! Six blocks of grass, sculpture, flowers, fountains, trees. Just west of the Old Courthouse.

You can't go wrong with this place. Free! Lots of stuff to climb on, play in, and the flora and fauna are absolutely beautiful! Kids should wear a swimsuit and bring a towel... lots of water features to play in! Food trucks are there on Fridays or pack a lunch and have a picnic.

I found this to be cute, nice little oasis in downtown St. Louis. The sculptures and water features really offer some nice photo opps. I even saw rabbits hopping around the white rabbit sculptures! What a nice surprise. There is also an eatery right next door - but I came late and it was closed. I would definitely go back... More

Great downtown experience. A great stop after visiting the Arch to eat our lunch. Fun sculptures and a great place for kids to cool off---Mom's too by soaking my feet in the water.

This was a pretty walk with my kids through the city. Lots of interesting sculptures and fountains. Great little splash pad to cool off in during the summer. Huge waterfall area fountain/ampitheater close by that people were swimming in too.
