This park was a great distraction from the New Orleans Norm. Its easily accessible by trolley and offers lots of opportunities for you to enjoy at an intense or snails pace...be it a bike ride, paddleboat or kayaking on their lake...or to pack a picnic and enjoy a lazy afternoon under one of the giant trees scattered throughout. They've done a really nice job on this park and I would highly recommend scheduling some time in your visit for this...really hard to beat.

I've never been to a park that has a merry go round and minutiae golf! It's a very big area and its nice that it has a covered area.

Took my 7 year old here for the first time and it was amazing!!! First we paddled boats on the big river which wasn't expensive at all, then we rented a double bike (surrey) which we loved it also had a canopy to keep the sun away (also not expensive),both rentals were for an hour,then we drove about a half mile down to Storyland and it my daughter really enjoyed all the story book character figures and it was nice to take pictures of her in them. Connected to this park was the amusement park with a wide variety of rides like bumper cars and merry go round and they sell a wristband for unlimited rides. We spent a total of 5 1/2 hours and not too much money it was a fun filled day, I would recommend City Park to anyone who has children an even those without. We didn't go to the huge golf course but maybe next time. If you're planning a trip to New Orleans this is an awesome place that you must see!!!

Great for riding bikes through lots of great sidewalks. We even saw some unusual bikes that were rented. Like 6 passenger bikes. Walking through the sculpture garden was very relaxing.
