I originally visited this park for a wedding at the Singing Tree, but highly recommend it for locals and tourists alike. It is absolutely beautiful, clean, and offers museums, playgrounds, a cafe, and ample open areas. The live oaks are stunning. There is ample parking as well.

We were in New Orleans for 5 nights and after the usual tourist things we were looking for a quiet day for a picnic lunch and a walk. This park is large and well serviced .. well worth a morning or afternoon visit.

I spent a lovely afternoon and evening at the park. The French Quarter and Garden Districts are much more known, but this is a lovely area not to be missed, once those more touristy areas are explored. The Sculpture Garden is quite nice, even for those of us non-artsy types. Then there are the foot paths through the beautiful trees... More

City Park is by far the most beautiful park I've ever been to. It's an oasis in the middle of a robust city, and there is a bounty of things to do here. Like another reviewer mentioned, there is a coffee/beignet shop in the park named Morning Call. It's open 24 hours, and a great place to stop for a... More

I attended a wedding at the New Orleans City Park where the wedding ceremony was performed and the reception was held. The environment was clean and pleasant and the food and services were of top quality. Great quality, great location!

While at City Park on our city tour, we chose to tour the sculpture garden instead of purchasing snacks. It was very interesting, just wish we had had more time to return later and see it at a leisurely pace.

We stopped in this park as part of a bus tour. The restaurant in the park is open 24 hours a day and serves 3 beignets for $2.10. Nice and hot! The park has an excellent sculpture garden. There is a wonderful kids portion of the park, that includes a train, and fairy tale village. It's the third largest urban... More

Staying in Lakeview

Neighborhood Profile
Lakeview
Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond City Park more great excuses to stay outside beckon, whether on land or by boat. Developed a good deal later than most other New Orleans neighborhoods, Lakeview has a distinctively different look and feel compared to other parts of the city. Fans of mid century modern design and contemporary architecture particularly enjoy leisurely drives around the residential streets of Lake Vista, Park Island and along Lakeshore Drive.
