“Art you can play on!”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

I think this was the cutest idea! It's art you can play on. Even the water show area is meant for kids to play in. Conveniently located. Beautiful!

“Fun, Funky, and Conveniently Located”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

My boyfriend and I visited the City Garden simply to fill time between lunch and visiting the Gateway Arch. It turned out to be a fun half hour of taking pictures with the statues, guessing what they were representing, and giggling about feeling like kids playing in the park. It was fun and relaxing, plus it is in such an easy location to tack on to visits to the surrounding attractions.

“interesting place to relax”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

If you are already downtown, this is a worthwhile area to spend some time relaxing. Not a large area that will take a lot of time. Nor would I recommend a drive if only to go here. Well done, nice spot to hang out

“revelatory”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

I never thought City Garden was a good idea. Who wants another sculpture park? Who goes downtown with their kids? Why put in an area surrounded by bland modernist buildings?

I was very very wrong.

This place is amazing, all the more so in how it brings out the beauty of the surrounding buildings. Even without kids shouting and playing, it activates a formerly dead urban space. Add the playing children and you've really got something. People compare it to Millenium Park. I like it better - and I'm from Chicago.

“Great art.”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

A large variety of different types of sculptures. Very impressive that this city enjoys it's art and shares it openly with all to see.Loved the white rabbit, the waterfall and the pink suit guy without a head. Oh yeah and the head!
