Walking distance from all of the arch area hotels - and free! We had 3 adults and an 8 year old and 12 year old. We wound up spending hours! It was beautiful and interactive. I couldn't believe how much the kids even like it. If you have smart devices there is an app that kids liked with it. The... More

I take my daughter here during the warmer months around evening time when the lights make it look almost magical. Kids love running around, climbing, and getting wet in the sprinklers. My daughters favorite is a part of the ground that plays music when you step on it.

Ambling our way back from the arch we stumbled across this delightful park. Full of sculptures for all to see including children's characters - amazing to see wild rabbits running around the rabbit statues. A place to rest and reflect in the shade.

I recommend downloading the app for CityGarden from the app store as it will tell you a little more about each piece and the artist. Lots of interesting pieces.

Strolled through the park after frozen custard. Impressed with the eclectic exhibits and the playful fountains.

My partner & I just happened across this delightful & quirky park as we walked from the Gateway Arch to Bailey's Range café (both worth checking out). There are humorous sculptures and water features and lots of separate sections which are great for picnics or sitting quietly and watching us tourists gawp and photograph it all! I loved the pink...

Treat yourself!! Interesting sculpture in a fantastic setting of native plants right in the middle of downtown. Give yourself plenty of time -- it's two blocks long but lots of eye candy can easily take more than an hour to stroll. And ... all FREE!!

Cool park. Very neat little park among the hustle bustle of downtown. Cool at night with the light show. Would have been nice during the day as well with the water garden and sculptures.

Thank Kat L
