This is a lovely and safe park for running plus they have little exercise stations for doing pull-ups and crunches. Add to this a dreamy and manicured park setting around a lake with lots of happy birds!

This beautiful city park located in uptown New Orleans is located right on St. Charles Avenue and is easily accessible from the downtown area using the St. Charles Avenue trolley. The location of the park is approximately 5.2 miles west of Canal Street and takes approximately 36 minutes on the trolley. The area where the park is located was used... More

We took the St. Charles trolley car down to Audubon Park. The park is so beautiful. Old oak trees with branches that go in all directions, it's like something out of a fairy tale. This park is a must see for anyone who loves nature.

I loved the different types of exhibits with animals that were local to the area. The alligators with the swamp exhibit were awesome. It's a big zoo. Also loved the dinosaur stuff for kids, the trees, and the openness.

I grew up in Audubon Park. From my tree climbing club in elementary school to training for a half marathon, the park provides beautiful landscape for a day outside.

We walked partway around this beautiful shaded park with the giant trees and hanging spanish moss! There were plenty of covered picnic areas with washrooms. The pond in the center attracted numerous ducks and birds. We did not visit the zoo during this trip.

Audubon Park, located conveniently directly between the Audubon Zoo and Tulane/Loyola Universities, is a large park with a 2 mile running/bike trail and lovely views of ponds, trees, and St. Charles Ave and Magazine St. It is usually crawling with Tulane students lounging in the grass on the St Charles side, and people of all ages on bikes and on...

We were in town on vacation after our cruise and came here to let the kids play at the park. From downtown New Orleans, this is easily accessible via streetcar (which the kids also enjoyed). They played here for a little over an hour before we jumped back on the streetcar to head back to our hotel. We were staying... More

This is a beautiful, scenic park, perfect for escaping the busy hustle and bustle of New Orleans. I will preface my review by saying that unfortunately, while my mother and I were visiting we got stuck in a bad thunderstorm, so we were not able to see all of the park. My review is based only a small portion of... More

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.
