This was a great place to get away from the crowds of the French Quarter and go for a relaxing walk. The oak trees are beautiful and one in particular, The Tree of Life is nearly 170 years old is not far from the St Charles entrance and well worth seeing. From there, walk around the corner to the right... More

A great zoo! The Swamp Life venue was incredible. A most interesting tour.Historically fun! The aviary was on of the best I've been to. Rare albino tigers and alligators that was a first for us.Don't miss this on your trip.

Past the Garden District homes, which have a walking tour all to themselves, the St. Charles Streetcar stops at Audubon Park and Tulane and Loyola Universities. These are my other favorite locations in New Orleans, for the grandeur of the university architecture, the live oak and Spanish moss-draped city park with running trail and central ponds, and the quaint streetcar...

This park is a gem of a spot, its perfect to walk, jog, relax or hang out. Parking is free on the road outside, or on the St. Charles Ave tram line. This is the perfect place to escape the lights and sounds of Bourbon Street, or recover from the night before. A must do for all visitors!!!

One of the better zoos I have been too, it's large and the animals seem well cared for. Bus 11 on magazine street is the easy way to get there and back but you can get the st Charles streetcar and walk a bit further. We took the streetcar there and the bus back at 1.25 one way a cheap... More

Beautiful tree scenery and good spot for a walk.Go behind the zoo for a great spot to sit and watch ships move down the Mississippi,I think that area is called the Fly.

We strolled through the park from the St. Charles street car stop. It's beautiful..lots of huge oaks and even some playgrounds for the little ones. I wish we had more time to spend there, but we were headed for the zoo...you could easily make a day exploring this gorgeous park!

A gem! Easy to get to. Walking, biking, rollerblading. A lake, lots of fish and fowl to view. We spent a leisurely evening walking around the lake.

Wonderful old park in the heart of the college district (near Tulane and Loyola) however it was kind of drab and not a lot to do if you didnt bring your bike or "games" from home (i.e. place to rent a frisbee or the like). Nice trail and scenery but thats about it.
