When we were there, they had their Festival of Lights, at the beginning of Dec. It was beautiful. We also got to stop in during a bus tour and did a power tour of the sculpture garden. Loved it!!

While in New Orleans we were looking for places that would be good for taking pictures and we found City park. Beautiful oasis in the city and lots of photo opportunities. Family friendly as well as pet friendly.

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
