In what city can you see up close the pink-legged Black Bellied Whistling ducks, decked out Wood Ducks, snow white Egrets, Mallard and white duck socializing with each other? This layover station for migrating birds offers a lovely setting for walks and bikerides. If you catch the St. Charles street car at the right time of the day and at... More

Went to a shrimp boil as part of a family wedding celebration at the Fly in Audubon Park, near the Zoo. Our taxi driver had not a clue as to where "the Fly" was even after we told him that it was near the zoo. The day was overcast but the Park was hopping with people.

Nicely laid out, everything looks well-maintained and expensive. Only fit, slender persons are allowed in, it seems, or maybe it just reflects the neighbourhood.

Love these old parks with the huge old oak tress. Park is very well kept up, home of the New Orleans Zoo which is very charming. A great place to visit while in New Orleans.

Very beautifully maintained park. It was relaxing just to walk around and look at the various sculptures.

We found out the hard way that the Aquarium and Insectarium were not there… Keep on the left side of the walking path if you're walking (not the right, that's for cyclists who will yell at you), and stick to the shady bits if you can!

The name Audubon conjured images of a large, expansive, well thought out zoo. Just a background of us. We have been to the St. Louis Zoo, Chicago zoo, so we have been to some of the best zoos that our country has . We had high expectations of this zoo. Especially from the reviews we read here. This place was... More

The Tree of Life is a perfect photo spot. Picnics along the river. Better go in the fall. Too hot in the summer.
