Top ways to experience New Orleans City Park
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Lakeview
Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond City Park more great excuses to stay outside beckon, whether on land or by boat. Developed a good deal later than most other New Orleans neighborhoods, Lakeview has a distinctively different look and feel compared to other parts of the city. Fans of mid century modern design and contemporary architecture particularly enjoy leisurely drives around the residential streets of Lake Vista, Park Island and along Lakeshore Drive.

A New Orleans "Must See"
Aug 2021
We've been to New Orleans many times, but never made it to the park before our last visit. It is great! It's peaceful, quiet, and beautiful.

So much to do and see within the park! From NOMA and the sculpture garden, to the botanical gardens and more, there really is something for everyone.

Beautifully maintained majestical park.
Aug 2021 • Couples
Absolutely beautiful park. Well maintained. Very much worth a visit in the morning before it gets to hot. Huge beautiful love oaks with Spanish moss. Fountains, benches, bayou back waters. Have lunch at Ralphs on the park when it starts getting hot. Highly recommend a visit.

Great New Orleans option with children
Aug 2021 • Family
We came here to give our 6-year old their fun in New Orleans. It was a great way to pass half a day. We started with Storyland, a kind of playground for smaller kids with areas themed to different tales. Super well kept up, and offered nice interactive options that kept our girl busy for about 90 mins. This then opened onto the amusement park: also great for her size. Lots of kids rides: bumper cars, funhouse etc. The kids train ride goes around the entire park and is great.

Move along, nothing to see here!
Aug 2021 • Couples
It’s alright. We were excited to go to this park based on all the positive reviews. We toured the sculpture garden & the botanical garden, walked around. The park is OK. The sculpture garden was full of really weird sculpture that mostly were either of nude people or indicipherable forms. The botanical garden is a shame to the name botanical garden. It was a real waste of time. Much nice parks in many other cities. Feel free to skip it.

Best City park EVER!
Jul 2021
This is one of the most gorgeous city parks I've ever been to in my life! There are large oak trees with spanish moss, several pretty bridges behind the Cafe Du Monde, a beautiful lake with birds of all kinds. So many things to do at this park. There's a mini golf course, Cafe Du Monde, walking/running trails, benches, playground equipment. Highly recommend visiting this gem!

Great for Beignets
Jun 2021
If you want to try something out of the French Quarter, go to City Park. There's a Cafe du Monde there for beignets and good coffee in the morning. Then walk around the many paths. Very pretty.

We were excited to see this amazing park with beautiful gardens including the paddle swans. Unfortunately it started raining and we did not get the full experience!
