Picturesque art all over the garden. Perfect place to teach children the importance of art with easy (and even free) access. In cause of its very central location, you can’t miss it during your visit to the arch and downtown area.

Just one block in size, this city park offers a nice quiet reprieve from the cement jungle. There are large art sculptures to enjoy. Come sit and take in a little nature.

A great garden to visit, take your time & look at all the areas & enjoy the flowers . It's shady & felt very safe there.

Nice enough but not really a destination spot. Small--not much to see. Go to the Botanical Gardens or Forest Park instead.

The "controversy" seems to be over whether it has been "over designed", and as a garden designer I was very curious about that charge. My husband and I differed. I thought it was; he didn't. I think there is too much public art in too...More

An urban oasis. A splash park, a quick walk ... In the next block, a cool playground. It’s currently being decorated for fall.

They have fun sculptures and water fountains the kids can run through and fo in. It was clean and there was a park monitor on duty. Not too far is a small park that our kids really enjoyed too!

Good question! I walked up the street to the Old Union Station (Hilton Curio Hotel) and found restrooms in the lobby.
