We took the trolley here one afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I do think that the trolley ride was one of the things that made it special. I enjoyed the sculpture garden the most and could have spent more time there. One of the people...More

When we were there, they had their Festival of Lights, at the beginning of Dec. It was beautiful. We also got to stop in during a bus tour and did a power tour of the sculpture garden. Loved it!!

While in New Orleans we were looking for places that would be good for taking pictures and we found City park. Beautiful oasis in the city and lots of photo opportunities. Family friendly as well as pet friendly.

This park was great. I completed a 4 mile run w/o any distractions. The course/track to run is nice and leveled. Additionally the park is extremely aesthetically nice. Its a great to do thing for visitors

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
