This is one of those places you see in all the books. Its atmosphere so encompasses New Orleans that it is a must see in my book. The trees, the people and the experience is quintessential to the environment of New Orleans. I highly recommend this for any visitor to this wonderful city!

If you want peace and quiet in NOLA this is the place. Lake teaming with fish, turtles and birds and lots of joggers and people on horseback using the tracks and bridleways

Can one get tired of looking at beautiful houses and huge centennial trees that feel like they have a mind of their own on streets that tell amazing stories?

While there wasn't much to do, we did enjoy a wonderful afternoon at the park. A truly wonderful one. The park is right across from Tulane I believe and it is actually one of the stops from the train in New Orleans. I will say that that train/transit does not run every hour on end like the Canal Street Ferry... More

This park has a wonderful walking, bike riding path which is about two miles in a beautiful setting. You will walk pass old oak trees, water with ducks which sometimes cross the path, swans, turtles, and all kinds of birds. The park has a golf course next to it and a place to eat at the Audubon Golf Club. There... More

Beautiful park that sits on the grounds of what was once a large plantation. The flora is magnificent (especially in Spring and Fall), the massive, huge live oaks are amazing. The lagoon trail are especially nice. The park is located adjacent to Tulane University, Audubon Zoo, and the St. Charles Street Car.

We took a very nice walk through the park. Lots of herons, egrets, ducks, swans, and turtles. Beautiful old trees and fountains. Definitely worth the trip.

It was hot and humid during our visit. I'd suggest visits in the early spring and later in the fall when the humidity level drops. Word of advice, don't kick the mole hills!!! Fire ant hills are all over the park!

This was a nice activity to see a different side of New Orleans. The moss covered oaks, beautiful homes and colleges lining the park make it a scenic route.
