“Beautiful Park, attended Celebrations in Oaks 2012”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

I've visited the beautiful park several times, but this was my first
time attending the annual Celebration of the oaks events.

The park is beautiful, lots of food, great live entertainment
and wine and spirits of all kinds.

“Do not miss!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

I visited New Orleans at least a dozen times before finally visiting City Park. This is a very special public place, a wonderful attraction for a good half-day visit, and it's free! The collection of public art spaced throughout is fantastic, the landscaping is beautiful, and there's plenty to do and see for families, couples, or even solo for a bit of solitude away from the bustle of the city. Gardening enthusiasts should also visit the Botanical Garden attached to the park.

I loved a bike trip to this Park to see all statues of different artists, just amazing, this park looks bigger than central park in Manhattan
