“Beautiful”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

The big oaks, the ducks and swans, the museum of art—this place is a must see. I met a lot of locals here too.

“Brilliant Sculpture Garden”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

The Sydney & Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden has an enticing & unusual selection of sculptures displayed among trees & shrubs, grassy areas, off the regular paths, over bridges & along waterways.
Works by Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, Renoir, Rene Maigritte, & many others are here. I especially enjoyed 3 Figures & 4 Benches by George Segal, Spider by Louise Bourgeois, & Tree of Necklaces by Jean-Michael Othoniel.
The City Park s so huge & has the Art Museum, Botanic Gardens & lots of walks & fountains to enjoy.
Each area deserves its own time.
A great respite from the bustle & hustle of town.

“Huge park with a variety of attractions”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Great for a lazy day of exploration -- especially if you have a bicycle. The park is huge with many separate areas/environments to enjoy. Take a stroll or a bike ride around the park and enjoy nature right in the middle of the city.

“Huge public park on streetcar line”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

New Orleans city park is very large with quite a few attractions and more being added in the future. The NOLA museum is quite impressive and you could spend a couple hours there. If you want a break from the French Quarter or any hustle and bustle in New Orleans, I'd recommend City Park.
