Sitting in the heart of downtown St. Louis, Kiener Plaza and the Morton D. May Amphitheater command
a dramatic view of the Old Court House and the Gateway Arch.
The park’s centerpiece is a pool and fountain containing
a statue known as “The Runner” by sculptor William Zorach.
Architecture defines the plaza and amphitheater,
adding formality and providing the character needed
to be compatible with the surrounding cityscape.
Visitors can find quiet seating areas, paths, and lawn areas for leisurely strolls.
The cascade fountain provides a focal point and its background sound provides some acoustic
privacy from the sounds of the city.
Both the plaza and the amphitheater provide a peaceful
haven for tourists, conventioneers, and thousands of workers from downtown who routinely
frequent the plaza during the lunch hour.
Kiener Plaza is host to St. Louis Cardinal, Ram and Blues rallies and victory celebrations.
Concerts, festivals and a myriad of other special events hosted by civic, private,
marketing, and not-for-profit organizations all take advantage of the plaza and the “best view in town.”
The area provides a picturesque setting for festivals, concerts, company picnics,
private receptions for conventioneers, fundraising benefits, tailgate parties,
pre-game rallies, and marketing events.
