Looking for something different to do this weekend? How about taking a walk around the Laumeier Sculpture Park in Sunset Hills which just landed as number 3 on a list of the World's Most Amazing Sculpture Gardens. At I-44 and 270, this 105 acre park features some of the world's most reknowned modern and contemporary art work as well as walking trails.
But St. Louis has not one but two sculpture parks on this list-number 8 is the Ellen Clark Sculpture Garden at the corner of Grand and Lindell on border of the campus of St. Louis University. Much smaller, but just as unique, this park also doubles an historical place and as a dog park. " On May 10, 1861, federal troops — already on edge and spooked by the sound of gunfire — fired into the crowd, killing 28 civilians, including several children, and wounding nearly 100 more". It looks like you can visit here and bring your dog for free.
