On our last day in STL we decided to walk around downtown and take some pictures. We stumbled upon the City Garden. It is very pretty, very well kept and has some unique structures. Worth walking through if you are downtown, but probably not worth making a special trip for.

This may be downtown St. Louis best feature next to the arch. While I didn't "get" all the art pieces, like the electronic walking screens, it was all thought provoking and in a beautiful urban garden. The map was informative and gave great explanations of the pieces. The park was deserted, I was one of only four other people. I... More

My wife and I stumbled upon this as we were waking in the city. It's a place with some cool sculpture and places to sit and rest ur feet. Also a great place to enjoy a takeaway lunch!

We go here several times a day walking our dog. Great little park right in the center of downtown. Cool sculptures and a water feature. There is security on site all the time. Safe place to take your pet or just hang out for a while. Can get crowded during the weekday lunch hour on nice days, but that's part... More

This is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon with or without kids. It's always changing and has never been crowded in my experience.

Nice park in the center of downtown. Nice to walk around and kids can play. Neat sculptures for kids to see. Short walk to arch as well from here. There wasn't food trucks there but close restaurants and also just around the corner from the stadium.

I am going to start by saying that I only saw City Garden at night and so I was not able to fully enjoy everything. It was a nice place even at night and it would be somewhere that I would go just to sit an people watch and think if I lived in St. Louis. My next visit to... More
