Citygarden

It’s exactly what it sounds like – a garden in the middle of a city! Only this is a sculpture garden, and one particular sculpture drew the attention of my friend who really, really wanted to go “see the bunnies,” aka large, white, marshmallow-looking rabbit statues:

So this Saturday, we finally drove out to Citygarden for a senior girls photo shoot. I had a blast and took a ton of photos (finally pulled out the tripod) but am only able to share a handful of them because of privacy reasons. Nevertheless, the garden itself is gorgeous in the fall season and definitely worth looking at!

Citygarden in St. Louis Pink Suit Statue

Oh, your city doesn’t have a huge, pink suit standing in the middle of office buildings?

This picture was one of my favorites! We drew inspiration from the Beatles, obviously:

Walking Statues in Citygarden St. Louis

These figures were animated to seem like they’re walking. I should’ve made a GIF here, huh?

I have actually been to Citygarden once before when I visited St. Louis my senior year of high school. I remember my brother and I posing next to the statue above and shouting at our mom to “take our picture of us walking with them!” That, and the bunny statues were the only things that I remembered from that visit. Sigh…and this is why pictures act as my memory now.

Another group picture that I can share!

Never been to Citygarden? Well, hopefully after scrolling through my photos you’ll be inspired to put this on your St. Louis bucketlist. What are some of your city’s fun attractions?

Oh, and we completely missed this on our way into the garden, but couldn’t have missed on the way out:

Just a tad creepy.

Thanks for reading!

P.S. More sculpture gardens: Laumeier Sculpture Park, Socrates Sculpture Park, and Selfies & Sculptures at Millennium Park
