This is an urban paradise. The Oak trees are amazing. The locals are some of the most friendly people anywhere. Although it was just my wife and I, I noticed many families with children enjoying themselves. Peddle boats on the bayous along with fishing seemed to be very popular. A new $25 million public golf course is getting off the... More

Walked up Esplanade from our B&B to City Park, went to the chimes tree and then found my first Geocache in New Orleans. Stopped off at Morning Call for the best coffee in town before walking around the park to the Red Trolley Car stop. Great place to visir

Such a beautiful park but don't go on a Monday lots of the surrounding attractions are closed. St.Johns Bayou is right there to stroll along. Easy to get to

We spent a warm Sunday last week walking around City Park. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was a nice time. This is really a park designed to give the residents of New Orleans a great place to be outdoors. There are ball fields of all kinds, playgrounds, and Frisbee golf! For tourists, it is more a place... More

Our family spent about 2 hours at City Park. It was very hot and the other attractions were closed when we got there, so we opted to spend our time renting canoes and kayaks for the lake. The price for rental was reasonable $20-25 and we enjoyed our time there. However, as soon as we got out of the canoes... More

I have now been to Voodoo Festival three times and it is my favorite music festival location. The beautiful park with the great old trees is just fantastic.

We took the street car most of the way to the park and then walked the last few blocks. Once we got there, we rented a Tandem Bike and rode all around the park. We stopped at the sculpture garden, rode past the Story Land, found our way to the north end of the park and then rode over to... More

The New Orleans City Park is home to the largest and most beautiful trees I have ever seen. Unfortunately, we were on a very strict timeline and did not get to spend much time exploring all the park has to offer but it is on my list of things to do when I eventually return to NOLA. We were on... More

The Morning Call cafe is located in the park, with great beignets. Museum and lots of space for family activities.
