Pretty, well-maintained area with a wide variety of sculptures. Some are great, most are good. Nice stroll for 30-60 minutes in City Park.

Attended a wedding here and it was absolutely beautiful. It was surprisingly quiet. A beautiful day accented the lovely setting.

The City Park in mid-city is a gem for New Orleans. Post-Katrina renovations have greatly improved its usability and beauty.

The sculpture garden is located in a beautiful setting. Benches, waterways and flowers abound. The sculptures themselves are amazing with a good mix of artists and styles. We loved it!

A lovely garden and beautiful sculptures. Would've liked to have seen more, but a tornado watch and impending storm cut short our visit. We loved what we did get to see.

If you go to City Park make sure to stop off here. It's really a quick little stop but also really nice. We did a very quick tour when we stopped for a break on a bus tour we were taking. It was raining and we only had about 15 minutes but we managed to quickly see everything. I'm sure... More
