Linger a while to catch the breeze and the views. Photograph St Louis cathedral day or night. People watch or see impromptu shows. A must do.

Go during the early evening and catch the sunset while listening to an actual bag-piper. He might not be good, but the piping might relax you. After of which, head down the back stairs and to the Moonwalk (Riverwalk area), and watch as the Mississippi forgives your daily stress.,

This little park, directly across Decatur St from Jackson Square, and nestled along the Public Belt Railroad, and the RTA Streetcar Riverfront Line. Because of its elevation, it has a commanding view of both Jackson Square, and the River.

We were strolling through Woldenberg Park, and came up from the River side, then spent some times admiring both the view, and the area in Washington Artillery Park.

On this sunny June day, many others had the same idea, and most of the seating was filled, though there was fairly rapid turnover.

Even if one only makes a brief stop (steps involved from both sides), it is worth it, if only for the views.

This has an excellent view of Jackson Square but be cautious of strangers. There were some street hustlers trying to scam me for money and got verbally violent when I politely said no thank you. If they talk about your shoes, don't engage with them.

This "park" is a great photo op in between Jackson Square and the River. Since it's elevated, you have both a cool view looking towards Saint Louis Cathedral as well as a view the other way looking out at the water.

There isn't much to do in this spot, but the benches are nice to take a rest and do some people watching. This would be a potential spot for grabbing food to go from Cafe du Monde and enjoying it here rather than sitting in the crowded restaurant.
