Reviewed July 7, 2013

This is such a nice place to spend the day and walk along the Mississippi River. Plenty of place close by to eat and shop.

“Wow”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Beautiful gardens right in the heart of The French Quarter. Takes you back in time, and street musicians playing in the square. Great.

“Very Pretty”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

This is a lovely park in the middle of NOLA. I was told that there were many trees damaged by the Tornado, however it looked great and the volunteers have done a great job of bringing it back to it's former glory. If you're in New Orleans this is a great place to take children as there are excellent facilities there to accommodate kids and there is also a small café at the entrance to the park.

“Awesome views for pictures”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

There are huge Live Oak trees all over the grounds that make for great pictures. There are many bridges over the small creek that are cool too. You won't be disappointed with the Beinegets at the small cafe in the park as well! Overall: Great way to spend a morning or afternoon!

“My most favorite place in NOLA!”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Definitely recommend for anyone, couples, family with kids, young and elder...

-The sculpture garden is pleasant. Many creative pieces and beautiful landscape. I took tons of photos!

-The great lawn is super comfortable. I was there in labor day weekend which is hot and humid, but I was able to enjoy a nice afternoon there in the swing, even took a nap :)

-there're some other interesting places, including botanical garden, story park, city putt, etc. Plan to be there for a full day fun!
