Okay, it was a hot day when we went there, so couldn't enjoy that much. Some shadow, nowhere to buy water, crazy people jogging ( :D ) and so many turtles in the river! Too hot to go to the bird island so didn't see many birds. Another problem was that we had to walk all the way back to... More

My husband and I rented bicycles and rode from the Quarter to Audubon Park. It was amazing. The trees and beautifully manicured grounds were stunning. A must see when in NOLA! Tulane is nearby and also a beautiful gem just outside the busy Quarter!

We rode the St. Charles trolley from the French Quarter to Aubudon Park. We needed to let the kids unwind and there are trees to climb on, playgrounds and the fitness course to test their strength. They were worn out after we walked around a bit. There are water fountains there so that was nice as well.

As a part of the Gray Line City Tour, we were allowed to alight and spend a bit of time in the Sculpture Garden here in the park - what a surprising delight! A gorgeous oasis far from the madness of the Quarter! Cable car will take you there - look for the routes.

When visiting New Orleans with kids, definitely make time for the zoo. It is set in the gorgeous Audubon Park and well worth the trip.

I am a local who loves to visit the Zoo at least once a month. they are always having seasonal shows with local entertainment on the Stage and the animal exhibits are world renown. The front of the Park is great for runners, walkers and biles and there is a representative golf course. The "Fly is a grassy area on... More

I am in the zoo business and I have to say this one is very impressive. Worth leaving the French Quarter to see.

Constantly adding and expanding . One of the better zoos I have been to. Although , no one can touch the San Diego zoo ! This one is a nice day trip ( If you live here half day ) can be combined with the aquarium & insectarium for a cheaper price .

If weather allows this a great spot to exercise. Easy access by trolley or a hefty walk from the Quarter/ convention area. Lots of large trees, noble old homes surround this area of NOLA.

You will see all the locals engaging in outside activities such as jogging, running, and other. Pets are allowed on a leash. The park is huge and beautiful. It is right off St Charles Street and surrounded by beautiful homes. It is also right at the entrance to the zoo.

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighborhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
