City Garden

8th and Market St.,, St. Louis, MO

There’s more free family fun located in these two blocks of downtown St. Louis than the rest of the city combined. Amidst fountains, trees, flowering plants, picnic tables and green grass are 24 playful sculptures that range from oversized bunny rabbits to a super-sized Pinocchio shouting “I’m a real boy.” A number of sculptures are more abstract but still contribute to the playful, stimulating environment. Kids and adults are welcome to play in the fountains, so bring a change of clothes and a towel and let the kids get wet. City Garden is located between Chestnut and Market from 8th to 9th Street in downtown St. Louis.
