The new park is located in downtown St. Louis and brings an attractive and active public space, according to this review.
"The City Garden brings to downtown not only an entirely new, and enthusiastic, demographic, but a new formal and aesthetic framework. This isn't to suggest that before the ribbon was cut and the crowds began exploring the grounds that downtown St. Louis didn't have green space and sculpture. But the sum of these existing parts seldom congealed into much. City Garden changes that."
