We loved our visit to the Audubon Aquarium. Get there for the feeding of the sea otters and penguins and you will have a treat. Lots to see and do and if you are traveling with children an absolute must.

There is a beautiful little pond with all sorts of ducks and turtles swimming around and a paved 1.8 mile path around the park. The inside of the park has a golf course but the park seems to be more popular for runners, walkers and bicyclists. There is a dirt path that goes along the little mansions that line the... More

Beautiful place to relax and easy to get to. I arrived here after getting off the St. Charles street car that I took in from New Orleans warehouse district area. After wandering around for an hour or so I had asked a stranger walking his dog what kind of trees I was looking at (live Oak) and what was hanging... More

We visited the zoo last year in the summer. At that point, we thought that the zoo was one of the better that we had visited. We do not have that opinion this visit. It took quite a bit of walking to see some animals, and they were either pigs, birds, or rodents. Many of the major exhibits had signs... More

My daughter and I walked through on our way to the Audubon Zoo, and thoroughly enjoyed seeing everyone taking part in their city and out walking their dogs.

You could spend a day soaking in the beauty, seeing the zoo, having lunch and visiting the River from the observation deck on the levee. Tulane University is right next door. Parking is limited. There are stables so horseback riding is also an option. On a rainy day not recommended. Right on the St. Charles streetcar line opposite Tulane U.... More

The park is at about 15 minute by street car from the centre of New Orleans. Inside the park there are a lot of attraction as the museum of art, the zoo, etc. A particular attraction is the singing tree.

Audubon Park is beautiful. We took the St.Charles streetcar to the park which is right across from Tulane and Loyola, walked through the park to get to the zoo. If you don't mind the extra walking it is a great way to see more of new Orleans. After the zoo we caught a bus down Magazine to get back to... More

The park was lovely even when the rain started. We enjoyed the sculptures are really cool. The park was surprisingly lovely in middle of the hustle and bustle of New Orleans.
