Parts of the gardens were pretty so see, but for the most part I found them to be a waste of time to go all the way out of downtown for them. New Orleans has better things to offer.

Admission is cheap. The place is easily accessible by streetcar. Grounds are nicely taken care of, nice walking experience with beautiful flowers, lakes, birds....plenty of benches to sit on. Fun day and a nice way to get away from the bustle of the French Quarter.

We grew up in New Orleans but moved away years ago. We were in town visiting relatives and decided to go to city park. After strolling around for awhile we decided to go to the botanical gardens. Wise decision we made. It was about 2:30pm on a Wednesday and the cost was only $4 a piece. Upon entering the gardens... More

First off, it's very inexpensive. Secondly the place is soooooo peaceful, has some absolutely beautiful spots in the gardens. Some parts remind me of a star wars movie. I would not go for the sole reason of going here but if you're at the park, must go.

This is the most beautiful garden I have ever been to...it's even better than Bellingrath in Alabama. It's really hot in the summer but it's worth going. It's only $4 to get in. They have several water fountains and you can bring in a drinks. It's huge so be prepared to spend a couple of hours there. Don't forget your... More

The gardens were beautiful and the art was interesting. The garden has several water areas and bridges and is part of the expansive city park (you can rent a paddle boat at the city park). You can get here and the art museum by using the Canal St. streetcars.

My hubby and I took our 4 children (ages 11 months, 4 years, 11 years and 14 years) to New Orleans for a long weekend trip. During our stay we visited the Botanical Gardens. It wasn't too expensive, $4 per person (baby was free) for Botanical Gardens and Carousel Gardens/StoryLand which is located right next to it. I loved the... More

I thought the Gardens were nice. Some of the displays were under renovation but it didn't take away from the experience. It had lots of pretty flowers and it was well-manicured. I thought the price was very reasonable compared to other botanical gardens I have been to. It was a nice way to spend a leisurely afternoon

Such beautiful gardens to see in City Park. The 800 year old oak trees are amazing! Very inexpensive and lovely photo ops.

My wife and I spent about an hour walking through this very nice botanical garden in City Park, not far from the art museum. Admission was $6 per adult. It isn’t very large as such gardens go but it is very beautiful and well done. There isn’t much shade so this would be pretty unpleasant on a hot summer day,... More
