New Orleans City Park reviews
If you want to try something out of the French Quarter, go to City Park. There's a Cafe du Monde there for beignets and good coffee in the morning. Then walk around the many paths. Very pretty. more »
We were excited to see this amazing park with beautiful gardens including the paddle swans. Unfortunately it started raining and we did not get the full experience! more »
City Park has it all. Most beautiful landscape, with walking and biking trails. Boat and bike rentals. Amusement park, putt putt golf, so many great activities. Take a stroll through the botanical and sculpture garden or visit our wonderful museum. City Park is my hang out spot, i love it!
This park has a great sculpture garden. Great walking path in the sculpture garden. You can get yourself lost in the garden. There are now two sides of the garden. A great lagoon. Now I think the lagoon needs to be cleaned and a little clear. They could use more variety and diversity in their staff. It's amazing a 60% black city still manages to have spaces with no Black employees or managers etc etc
