6400 Oakland, St. Louis, MO, 63139 / Cake artist: Liza Fishbone

 

Just right between Dogtown and across the interstate from the Zoo is this small park, made up of turtles! In fact, large sculptures of turtles. There are also snakes and eggs (designed to be like seating for adults). At least four different species of turtles are represented here. A typical playground for kids is also placed here. The turtles were made by the late Bob Cassilly, the same person behind the City Museum.
