Great for little ones

First stop in our 2nd New Orleans stay. The kids (4 & 7) loved it. It was a weekday so we had the whole park to ourselves. It lacks a cafe, so you must bring your own food.

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

The kids LOVED this little place!! Our favorite fairytales come to life in this little walk through park. The kids can chat it up with the 3 little pigs, visit with Snow White and so much more. You can go inside the structures and slide on slides, etc. This is a great way to have some good old fashioned fun... More

Great place to take a child! Adorable park inside the beautiful City Park and geared towards kids under 5. The theme is based off of nursery rhymes; cute play areas, slides, pirate ships, etc. My two sons love it, and the price can't be beat.

My 2 year old loved this little place. It only took us about 20 mins to go through it, but it was still fun. I think it would be a great place for a birthday party.

This place was awesome! My daughter loved it! The slides are little steep and she hit her butt on the ground every time and stopped wanting to go down them but she loved everything else! Such a cool idea for a park!

When in NOLA we always visit Storyland. It is classic fun. I love that they haven't tried to modernize the area. The kids love to play with the characters. The landscaping is beautiful and the new Ticket office and restrooms are lovely.

This was a small but cheap bit of fun for the kids. This particular area had different play areas based off of children's books. Kids can walk and enjoy the scenery. They got to explore a rocket, see models of the three houses the pigs built, see the shoe that the old lady lived in, etc. It didn't take long... 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.
