I knew Kiener Plaza was having work done but I didn't realize the scope of it until I saw that the entire park was essentially gone. This is the right approach though as the park was showing its age and certainly paled in comparison to the neighboring Citygarden. The sunken amphitheater has been removed and the entire park will be... More

The St. Louis downtown area is in transition and becoming a vibrant and culturally historical experience. Kiener Plaza is at the heart of the city, and Cardinal's baseball, the arch, Old Courthouse and Old Cathedral are all within an easy walk of Kiener Plaza. The area also offers an outdoor sculpture park, several beautiful fountains, and a myriad of quality... More

Nice park, with great views of the arch, over the courthouse. It would be great to see it in the summer, or when an event is going on. Overall worth a stroll through!

Started our day at the Gateway Arch and followed a Core of Discovery Arts and Architecture tour that included this as a stop. I enjoyed it purely for the sculpture of an Olympic athlete that was commissioned. The selection committee received flack for the design, by I quite enjoyed it, having been a runner in my day.

KIENER PLAZA is a nice spot to sit and relax after visiting the arch and the old courthouse. It's also a great place to take pictures. The sound of the "waterfall" is a plus and you can also put your feet in the water on a hot day if you like.

Just in front of the Courthouse where you get the Arch tickets, a nice spot to rest your feet and take a few photos especially if it's 90 degrees outside.
