The park is huge, so probably rent a bike is a good idea. But on winter, it's nothing special there.. we walked and walked and nothing caught our attention.. It's good to play with Kids! Inside is the botanical gardens, and the art museum.. both are payed!

We road bikes to the park on esplanade avenue which has a dedicated bike lane. The ride was easy and enjoyable. The park has altos of nice sitting areas with water features. Great little park for children. Think it was "story land" with structures depicting various children's rhymes and fairy tales. A The sculpture garden is free and first class... More

City Park in New Orleans is a hidden gem. Take the Canal St. City Park trolley directly to the front entrance. The park contains the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Besthoff Outdoor Sculpture Garden, the arbor off the Oaks, a golf course, a children's amusement park, a man made lake with paddle boats and much more. Within the Museum... More

It was so nice to have a short visit here at the park. Lots of areas to walk through and there is a little restaurant where we took our food outside and listened to live jazz.

I only saw this park from a tour bus and a few minute stopover at the gift shop and food court. This is a jewel- a wonderful place for family fun and gatherings- picnic areas- boating lake- gardens- a children's park and so much more. I am envious of the citizens of New Orleans for having such a wonderful place... More

Well worth the time to visit this park. The oldest oldest city park in the country and one of the largest. The hundreds of majestic old growth oak trees with the Spanish moss are so beautiful.

We started early one evening in late November to beat the crowds. The park is beautiful in the day but during Christmas it's gorgeous! The lights on all the old oak trees makes the trip well worth it! Go....

Went to explore the Celebration in the Oaks and had a great time. There are rides for kids, great themes and a light show for the family to gather around and watch. Vendors, snacks and sitting areas are plenty for those who are in needs of these amenities.

It is a huge urban park that every city should have. Anchoring it at one end is the New Orleans Museum of Art, then visit Storyland or the Amusement Park, the stables, tennis courts, the lagoons, fountains, or the Morning Call for coffee and beignets. A nice breath of fresh air for everyone who goes there.

We visited New Orleans in December and while there we took a streetcar to City Park for the "Celebration in the Oaks" activities for the holidays. The streetcar trip took about 25 minutes but when we finally got to the park it was well worth the trip. It is huge, beautiful, has lots of old Spanish Moss trees and Oaks.... More
