I doubt many tourists get to visit this park, as it is quite out of the central district. It can easily be reached by streetcar. If you happen to stay at a B&B in the area, it is definitely worth a visit, for a relaxing stroll. And if you enjoy running, especially in the morning, when it's not yet hot,... More

This park is one of the oldest in the city, is uptown and easily accessible. There are nice jogging and biking paths around the perimeter, and a gold course for those who wish that. Easy parking also. Beautiful trees, lots of ducks, geese and swans in the lakes there. Easy, cheap and fun.

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.

Thank lacerdm

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.
