Founded in 1853 and spanning 526 hectares (1,300 acres) New Orleans City Park is one of the largest and oldest urban parks in America. Stroll through this green space to discover the botanical garden, sculpture garden, and golf courses. Check out the antique wooden carousel in the park's amusement area, which is more than 100 years old and one of the few of its kind left in the country. The park also is home to the city's soccer stadium and the New Orleans Museum of Art, considered one of the finest art museums in the South. Rent a boat to explore the park's 18 km (11 mi) of lagoons, lakes, and bayous. Bikes are also available for rent.

  • Even if all you do is drive through this park, it is worth the time. The live oak trees, some over 800 years old, are everywhere. There are walking paths, there are small lakes, a museum, Cafe Du...

  • Such a wonderful place with so many great activities all together in a vast space. My wife and kids loved it. The willow trees are beautiful. Can have some nice coffee in the park as well. Take the time out to go here. There is a sculpture garden that really has a nice veriety...very creative.
  • Nice place to visit in New Orleans away from the hustle bustle of the French and Canal street where we stayed. There is a street car going there from the canal street. The park is wide spread, a good cafe there and a few hundred years old oak tree. There were some ducks and birds around too. Good place to walk, relax and shoot some images too. If you like nature and greens, perfect place to visit. I went early in the morning and was bright and sunny.
