“Love”
Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

A one of a kind park!!! Every corner that you walk on you will notice a new sculpture awaiting you and your camera. The park is beautiful and well planned to keep anyone in awe. I have never experienced such outside beauty and peace.

“Great free activity”
Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

This was a fun outing and free! I am not really into art but still enjoyed seeing this unique collection of statues in a pretty settig. The staff was late to open the park and then blew whistles and yelled at patrons across the park for various things (don't run, stay away from the water, etc). They kept telling people to watch out for snakes- so be forewarned. While we found this entertaining I can see where others would find this annoying in such a peaceful area. Overall we enjoyed it.

“Wonderfully done sculpture garden, and totally free!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

I'm lucky enough to live nearby, and I thoroughly enjoy strolling (and occasionally canoeing) through this ever-changing garden. Truly one of the city's (and City Park's) treasures! Many of the pieces are awe-inspiring! Great place to bring a date, children, parents, clients, anyone! Also, check for special events. We recently caught NOLA Project's nighttime performance of "Much Ado About Nothing," and it was absolutely brilliant!

“beautiful pieces!”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

We came across this little gem on a New Orleans tour. Even my husband who doesn't particularly like art enjoyed wandering around in the peace and quiet - he made a game of guessing the title of the piece before we walked up to it!

Definitely worth a look!

“Awesome”
Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

Some excellent pieces. We enjoy sculpture walks and this was one of the best. Just fun to be there and very peaceful. There is a restaurant across the street that was awesome.our first shrimp etouffee and red beans and rice. They were the best of our trip.
