Not In Jersey: St. Louis–Citygarden and Turtle Playground St. Louis–Citygarden and Turtle Playground - Not In Jersey

St. Louis–Citygarden and Turtle Playground

Friday, October 14, 2016

While we were in St. Louis, we visited two fun places that I have to share. Both, coincidentally, are parks and feature sculptures.

The first is called Citygarden and is located close to the Gateway Arch. It was close enough to where we were staying for us to walk there. We stayed at the Union Station Hotel, which in the old St. Louis Union Station train station! Much of the hotel is train themed and there are light shows in the lobby in the evenings.

Sculptures, etc. at the Citygarden:


By the way, you are totally allowed to play on all of the sculptures! From there, we walked over to Busch Stadium, where a soccer match was going on.


Next year, we want to see a Royals / Cardinals game, it looks like a cool stadium to visit!

The second sculpture park we visited is known as Turtle Playground and it is close to the zoo. We ate our lunch with the turtles!


As you can see, we really enjoyed our trip to St. Louis and even checked out some out of the ordinary places!
