Storyland is hilariously lame, yet I recommend it. I have a 3 yr old. It was perfect entertainment for her. She was young enough to not realize it was lame and old enough to get excited by the three little pigs and the big bad wolf. If you think of it as an amusement park, you'll be disappointed. If you...

Looking for something to do for a few hours, we headed to Storyland after reading about it and experiencing a similar concept at Idlewilde in Pennsylvania. My daughter was really too old for the exhibit. We checked it out, but the slides are in rough shape and she passed on them. While cute, it is really aimed for younger kids,... More

We brought our kids (ages 6-12) to play at Storyland. They were all very excited, even the 12 year old... for the first 30 minutes. It didn't help that it overlooks an amusement park. The park is big enough that the kids can lose their parents, but small enough that parents can't lose their children. They do have plastic sculptures... More

Storyland is a fun time for kids of all ages. It just works. So glad it has reopened & is maintained. Was closed for many years due to vandals. Check out Monstro the whale - he's been there a very long time & see if there's a puppet show.

This attraction is especially geared to younger visitors. They can climb into Cinderella's coach, or up a giant spider web, and run up and down Jack and Jill's hill. It's the perfect place to spend some time and energy - and very little money - if you are travelling with young children. Note: there is also an amusement park complete... More

When traveling to New Orleans with our 4 young children, I found this place, I didn't research it much or read reviews. I just seen some pictures and it looked neat. It was $4 a person to get in, including adults. My children are 10, 9, 7, and 6. I knew the older 2 might not be thrilled with it,... More

Our kids saw this so they insisted we stop and go in. The first impression was not a good one, the bathroom was a mess. It's your typical small-ride amusement park. The weather turned bad, and at first the (teenage) employees had no idea/information on when the rides would be turned back on (i.e. how long after the storm cleared).... More

This is a perfect stop for kids. Story land features many beloved childrens classics from the three little pigs, to mother goose, Peter Pan and so much more. My daughters 3 and 7 loved running around and playing. You must also try out the dragon slide (for bigger riders beware of the momentum you will gain - it's quite the... More

We took our six-year old nieces here on a Sunday afternoon. They had a ball and us adults enjoyed it also. A lot of rides appropriate for many different ages and the antique carousel (Circa 1900's and on Historical Register) is beautiful. Entire place is shaded by huge, moss filled oak trees, so plenty of shade. They also have a... More

Staying in Lakeview

Neighborhood Profile
Lakeview
Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond City Park more great excuses to stay outside beckon, whether on land or by boat. Developed a good deal later than most other New Orleans neighborhoods, Lakeview has a distinctively different look and feel compared to other parts of the city. Fans of mid century modern design and contemporary architecture particularly enjoy leisurely drives around the residential streets of Lake Vista, Park Island and along Lakeshore Drive.
