16 Reasons to Explore St. Louis
In 2009 Citygarden made its debut in downtown St. Louis. It mixes park and sculpture to create a life-size playground. Visitors can climb, splash or just sit and enjoy any of the two dozen sculptures and fountains. This massive urban playground has 235 trees and more than 4,000 perennials. It feels fresh, fun--and worth a couple of hours in a city that has plenty of cool places to play (citygardenstl.org).
