The circular paved path is only about 1.7 miles but it is a great path that winds along the golf course and lakes. It is shaded about 1/3 of the path. There is another narrow dirt path that... More

My husband and I were visiting and decided to take advantage of the weather and rent bicycles in the garden district. We rode around Magazine and then found our way to the... More

Nice walk following lunch in the Garden District. Beautiful live oaks draped with Spanish moss. Got there too late for the zoo, but the walk itself on running/biking path was great.
