About Us:

The Gateway Mall offers a strip of green space in the heart of Downtown St. Louis. It is used by people from throughout the metropolitan area for rallies, concerts, award ceremonies, festivals, parades, and other special events.

It also provides downtown workers with a place to get away from the office for an outdoor lunch or place to soak up the sun.

The City of St. Louis built Kiener Plaza in 1962, creating the park with the most beautiful and historic view in the city. 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.

The parks from Kiener Plaza to the Civil Courts building -- between Market and Chestnut streets from 7th to 11th streets-- are known collectively as "The Gateway Mall," although Serra Sculpture Park at the west end has its own name and identity.

In 1983, the Pride of St. Louis Redevelopment Corporation demolished the Title Guaranty Building on Seventh and Chestnut to construct the Gateway Mall complex. Pride eventually tore down the Buder and International buildings also on Seventh and Chestnut. It built One Gateway Mall on half of the block at 7th and Market. The remaining land on that block is owned and maintained by the owners of the building.

The half block and the parks running to 11th street are the Gateway Mall parks.

The block between 10th and 11 streets is Serra Sculpture Park, named for Richard Serra who created the large sculpture known as "Twain" on the block.

The Civil Court building occupies the block from 11th to Tucker streets but the parks resume on the other side of Tucker and run non-stop to 21th Street.
