This is a beautiful and very quiet garden. It's also big and very inexpensive. I really enjoyed my visit there. Also, the lady at the gift store was very friendly.

We spent about 4 hours in these lovely gardens on the last Sunday in May. It only cost $4 per person to enter and was lovely in so many ways. So many different kinds of plants, arranged so beautifully. A highlight for us with the model train that runs through a portion of the park. But all of it was... More

A few years back, my family and I came to New Orleans in the summer. We started touring Botanical Gardens on our vacations and we didn't want to pass up the flowers and trees indigenous to the famous city. It was wonderful. The flowers are beautiful and the trees are gargantuan. There are also butterflies galore! It was a great... More

Very beautiful garden. Definitely worth the $5 price of admission. My wife and I agree the highlight was the Japanese garden. It gave us some ideas for our own at home! There was some construction going on, and we heard the place is still a shell of its former self a decade after Katrina. I can say they're heading in... More

The Botanic Gardens is a nice place to visit as part of your overall experience in The City Park. The gardens were well keep, but very few flowers were in bloom.

Botanical Gardens are a must for nature lovers. What a great way to get away from the crowds of drinking party people on Bourbon St. Quiet pathways, gorgeous plants, natures perfume in the air. Take the streetcar ($1.25 exact change each way) and you are dropped off at the front door. Great for families or that single person wanting a... More

Tour worth the time, we were there in March and some spring flowers just winding down, but this is a large garden and just the size of the Oak Trees is worth seeing.

It's March 22nd and some of the flowers are already past their peak, but very nice and kept up well. (Yeah, lol, the fact that some of the flowers were past their peak may be expecxted to those of you who live near this area of the country, but I wasn't expecting it.) There was a wedding getting ready to... More
