I am a local and absolutely love this park. You really can't go wrong here. It's very large and there are often activities here.

We took a Lyft here from the French Quarter. Enjoy the garden for free and walk to the cemetary about a 15 minute walk.

My 5 year old really enjoyed it! We went early in the day so didn't get to enjoy the amusement park which doesn't open until 6pm. The little ones really enjoyed the Storybook Land. This is a huge park, we were able to visit the museum area to see statues, the botanical garden, and children playground area. We plan to... More

Take the street car to City park and spend hours wandering the miles of walking paths. The giant ancient oak trees with graceful spanish moss were my favorite scene. So much to do and see: a small amusement park for children, a coffee shop, serene ponds and endless beauty. Because of the holidays, the park is equally beautiful at night... More

We visited City Park for Celebration in the Oaks. Bought and printed tix online in advance to get in quicker. The light creations were gorgeous. Storyland was a huge hit with my five-year-old and two-year-old. We would go back to City Park again just to visit Storyland. Love the three little pigs display!! The best parts were the electric train... More

I decided to visit the park on my last day in New Orleans and was so happy I went: it's like being in a completely different city! While I loved the French Quarter for its music and atmosphere, it was also wonderful to go for a stroll in the park, look at the art (as part of the Museum of... More

Beautiful large park with lots of room to roam. The view was nice from many angles. People were friendly, and the place is very family friendly. We did some running, riding, and playing there.it is a must do in NOLA.

Staying in Lakeview

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
