Lovely, even with the water turned off

A little out of the way, but not too far from central downtown. A large scale and well executed sculpture with lots of symbolism. I enjoy art and sculpture more than my boy... read more

This is located in a small park, right across the street from Union Station and is not to be missed. This is a beautiful piece of art, particularly at night with the fountain going and the lights on but any time is fun to see this. A little bit of a walk from downtown but worth the walk.

While visiting St. Louis for a conference this happened to be right across the street from where I stayed. It's pretty. It's clean but not something I would go out of my way to visit.

For the art lovers, this is a beautiful piece of art. It is located by Union Station. It is very quiet around and brings peace.

A little out of the way, but not too far from central downtown. A large scale and well executed sculpture with lots of symbolism. I enjoy art and sculpture more than my boy formed, but even he was able to enjoy this sculpture, despite it being drained of water due to the time of year. Will visit again if I... More

If your downtown, this is a photo worthy stop. Located directly across from Union Station. Very unique artwork.

This fountain represents the meeting of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers. It is located in Aloe Plaza on Market St., opposite the old Union Station, now the Doubletree Hotel. It includes several lifesize figures, both male and female, along with fish and other aquatic symbols. It is a fine example of what civic art should be.

I recently spent some time in STL with my family and man did we have a great time. This fountain was interesting, but not spectacular. It is located across from Union Station and it was the site of a geocache which is the reason we stopped to check it out. With so many things to do in St. Louis this... More

We were down and the Union station doing some shopping and saw this beautiful fountain. It fits the area nicely with the great architecture in the city.

Our family of origin was taking a rail holiday to Dallas, TX, and we had a layover in St. Louis. Union Station and Milles Fountain were a great treat. Please do not drive by. Park the car at Union Station, and enjoy the artwork of the pure American fountain!
