Pretty park away from all the hustle and bustle.

We ventured out to the Garden District and Tulane University and stumbled upon Audubon Park. It was very pretty and serene taking a walk through the park away from all the noise.

We went, late in the afternoon, to Audubon Park to watch the Egrets flying around and nesting in the trees. What a sight! This park is nice - and is surrounded by beautiful old homes and I enjoyed it. If you go to New Orleans, you must visit here for a bit of history. A for a bit of people... More

Audubon Park is a fantastic place for family and friends to gather. Weddings under the Tree of Life is especially beautiful as well. The zoo is wonderful and the best it's ever been.

Our group had a wonderful Sunday stroll through and around the park. Walkers, joggers and golfers all enjoying the outdoors on a bright January morning. I loved the island in the lagoon with all the ducks and geese and all the lovely old oak trees were magnificent. We dropped in to the golf course club house for a drink and... More

I travel to New Orleans often. One of our favorite things to do before we leave New Orleans is visit the Audubon Park.

It's great to get out of the french quarter and head uptown for a stroll around Audubon. I wish we had time to visit the zoo, but next time!!

We rode from the French Quarter through the Garden District, and along Magazine Street to get to Audubon Park. It's totally flat to, from and at the park. The park has a nice circular bike and pedestrian path around a golf course. Beautiful live oaks and many birds, particularly water fowl. A great ride through interesting neighborhoods.

This could be a weekend excursion in itself! Pack a lunch, do a little research before you go and plan for a day of fun!

This is gem in New Orleans, this beautiful park is across from the Audobon zoo. Easy access via St Charles streetcar. Beautiful grounds with bike and walking baths. Nice for a walk or jog or to jut find a nice quiet place.

While we were riding the St Charles Street Car, we noticed a small creature running under a tree away from a dog. My husband thinks it was an armadillo but we never got to confirm it. It was at the Audubon park so we decided to hop off the Street car and explore the park. The park is much bigger... More

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighborhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
