“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Definetly worth a visit, lovely open spaces, well cared for, spotlessly clean and easy to get to from the centre of town on the trolleybus.

“Fine birding and hiking in the middle of Sin City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

The City Park is large and filled with all manner of sports venues, hiking and biking trails and just beautiful large areas to laze about or picnic. The Art Museum is there as well. My reason for going there is the birding which is amazing given that it's right in New Orleans. The real birding area is the Couturie Forest and Arboretum, a 33 acre second growth (after Katrina) forest with ponds, trails and lots of birds. It's right in the center of the park off Harrison Avenue. No better birding exist around NOLA unless you want to drive and hour or two to Grand Isle.
