This massive park has so much to do and see. You can explore it by foot, boat, bike. It's a great escape from downtown's hustle and bustle.

City Park is 1300 acres of unbelievable urban green space. The oldest section (the south side along City Park Avenue) contains the world's largest old live oak grove which stretches along a natural bayou. The trees are dripping with Spanish Moss. Also in the same area are a children's play ground, Morning Call with beignets and coffee, a sculpture garden,... More

You need at least 2 days to see everything in the park--we just didn't have enough time to do and see everything we wanted to. Take the city tour and you will see it!!

Arrived on streetcar, which took about 20 minutes from Quarter. Park is huge and spread out, so make sure you know what you want to do instead of wandering around. Waited another 35 minutes for streetcar back-must have just missed the one before it

Took the streetcar to the park. The statue area is near the park entrance and are fabulous. The park itself is enormous. A great place to spend a couple of relaxing hours. Good cafe there also.

We literally spent many hours in this city park, visiting storyland, golf city putt and just having fun relaxing around the great lawn, the playground and strolling around the beautiful small bridges. The carrousel is still closed when we went there, and unfortunately we didn't have time to visit the sculpture and botanical garden.Really love this park, a nice way... More

On one side of the park there is the Museum of Art and on the other side there is a Putt Putt golf course.There is also a restaurant the sells beignets and coffee. Near the... More
