Audubon Park is a remarkable place, but unlike Bourbon Street, not all of its attractions are in-your-face. Last weekend I met a lady from Massachusetts sitting on a bench under a live oak tree. “Did you come to Audubon Park specifically to see this spot?” “No, I just sat down here to wait for my girls to catch up; is...

We have always loved this place, but when we visited it in July the goats to pet were nowhere to be found. Also, we looked for a meerkat and we couldn't find it. Still the place is fabulous. I wish the price would be less prohibitive. We live in Raleigh where everything is free or really cheap. Paying almost $50... More

We rode the streetcar from canal St to Audubon park. On the way you will see beautiful oak trees and huge mansions alone St Charles Ave. you can walk across the park to Magazine St and browse the boutique shops and dine at one of the great restaurants here.

This place gives you some nice open spaces if you're feeling a little tired of the French Quarter. Jump on a streetcar and head up here - there is also a zoo and tons of other stuff to find to do. :-)

On the way to the zoo we drove through the Garden District and decided to walk through the park. This park is excellent and I wish I had one laid out like this near my home. They have a bike line versus a walking lane and what looked like maybe a running lane (?). The paved lanes were great and... More

Audubon park was on my "to-do" list for 2 visits to New Orleans. It just didn't work out the first two times and I was determined on my 3rd visit to get there. Arriving to the park in the car I was as excited as a kid to walk the grounds, see the trees and meet the famous Tree of... More

I'm from Savannah, GA so I'm used to old parks. This one is small but cute. Definitely worth the walk.

It's across the street from the zoo and a great little park. You can bike or walk around the 5k loop and see a bit of ducks and various birds. It was a really nice place to take pictures and being across from the zoo not hard to get to.

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.
