We took the St Charles Streetcar to the Tulane University stop to walk through the north entrance of Audubon Park. It was a beautiful park with huge oaks and a nice wide path to walk on. The oaks have resurrection ferns growing the on trunks, something we don't see on the West coast. We wound our way along the water... More

Run, walk or just sit and relax this is the place to be when in the Garden District. You will often see them filming movies and tv shows here. Start at St Charles and go over to the Mississippi River to the Fly!

I am not much of a zoo person, but this was well worth a visit - a very well done and well maintained zoo, with a good variety of animals. The swamp recreation is especially good with alligators and other swamp creatures.

Took a leisurely stroll around part of the park with our local fixer, drinking tall cans (not littering), sauntering by the mighty Mississippi and relaxing in the shade of The Tree of Life.

Sunny day of sightseeing with friends. Tired of driving around so we stopped for a quiet time away from the bustle. Nice family place, lots of lovely trees. Great place to walk with friends, walk your dog, jog, or have a picnic. Would definitely go again.

I try to go here every visit to the area. Large open grounds, amazing architecture, animals from local and far away. Just make sure to pack a poncho or rain jakcet

Streetcar ride out was a great part of the experience. Nice playgrounds and pretty lakes with variety of birds. Surprised that at least the northern end there is not snack stands.

This park is lovely, with miles of trails suitable for walking and biking. You will see ducks, turtles and other wildlife while walking along quietly.

Audubon Zoo is a jewel in a city filled with beautiful, historic places. It is easy to navigate, very kid and adult friendly. The park setting enhances the animal exhibits and the Louisiana area showcases the animals and cultural history of Louisiana. If you are staying downtown take a paddle wheeler down the river back to woldenberg park.

The park has lovely oak trees as well as paved walkways. Audubon Park is a very restful place in the city. It's nestled in the garden district near Tulane and Loyola. It's a must see when visiting the Big Easy.

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.
