This park was the following.....clean, quiet, comfortable and huge!!! They have beautiful fountains and statues as well as a good looking golf course. We saw a few birds on the wildlife front which made it even more serene. Good running path and picnicking available without any hassle. Right across the street from the Audubon Zoo

Wow! The trees are awesome at this park. There was a storm rolling in so we weren't able to stay but it was incredible to be next to these large old trees...what history they've experienced!

It is a nice place to stop and take a breather. It is big enough to walk through and enjoy the scenery.

Audobon Park is a beautiful place to walk through and enjoy the relaxing environment. There are huge Oak trees with spreading branches and Spanish moss. Winding ponds with wild ducks, squirrels galore! In the rear is Audubon zoo... another nice destination.

Went to the park and saw the Zoo (off the trolly take the free shuttle - much too long of a walk). Enjoyed the primates and reptiles but also took the z00train so we could get all of the sites in.

Take the green trolley out to the garden district and get off at Audubon park opposite the universities. We bought some delicious picnic foods from the Fresh Market along the route, corner Louisiana (ask the trolley car driver to alert you). We enjoyed our picnic overlooking the fountains. Explore & be rewarded. Oh yes...buy a $3 all day pass for... More

I sat on one of many park benches scattered around the park. Surprisingly it was as if I had the entire park to myself. I was inundated by the beauty James Audubon must have... More

This is one of my regular stops when I'm in NOLA. I love this park and surrounding area. I do a lot of photography in that area (daytime hrs) nice running, walking, bike, or in my case wheeling path.
