Not as well known as Audubon Park - you can still find wonderful live oaks and Storytime exhibits for the kids to play on. Huge (1,300+ acres) and up to date. The Botanical Garden (with its beautiful sculpture garden) is worth the entrance fee. Beautiful...More

A perfect spot for NOMA (New Orleans Museum of Art). The museum was not so big that we were able to see other sights and quite enjoyable. Be sure to stroll through the (free) Sculpture Garden while you are there and then stop by Morning...More

New Orleans city park has something for everyone! The park has multiple parks built into one park. Water activities, small theme park, botanical gardens, and more. Check it out!

Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake
Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for
family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans
Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel
Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush
Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and
the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix
of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
On average, how much time does it take for a stroll through the Gardens? I'd like to visit the Sculpture Garden and possibly Storyland and the Carousel Gardens. I have a reservation for the Gondola tour, so I'm trying to plan my time and avoid rushing. Thank you so much!
