This park is as large or larger than Central Park, it has an amusement park, sculpture garden, museum and many nice walking trails, nice to spend a day and get away from the hustle and bustle.

This being our 4th visit to New Orleans, we chose to see new sights and we were NOT disappointed. If you like art and love nature, then this is the place to go!

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
