Way overpriced for the small gardens and limited exotics. The nicest display is the toy train track which is interesting if shabby. I would not suggest this to anyone who wasn't in the mood to give the park a donation because the entry fee is...More

Lovely peaceful gardens, nice for a quiet stroll. Lots of different areas to explore and plenty of places to sit and relax. Visit the free sculpture gardens just over the road whilst in the park!

What a beautiful place to escape to! The roses were blooming, and the air smelled amazing. The gardens provide nice, open spaces to wander and you do not feel rushed along when enjoying the flowers.

Beautifully landscaped gardens, with lots of sculptures, hot houses, a model train that runs on the weekends, and gorgeous old trees. I enjoyed the statues here more than those at the neighboring sculpture garden outside the Art Musuem, but that one is free.

A very pleasant botanical garden with excellent well marked paths and a vast array of local plants flowers and trees. The small Japanese garden was quite enjoyable as well. The $8 admission charge was quite reasonable.

After several days spent amidst the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter, we wanted something quieter and more peaceful. The New Orleans Botanical Garden filled the bill perfectly. The NOBG is a fairly formal garden, with long enfilades and symmetrical parterres. It encompasses a...More

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
