Take your mind off of things for a bit, yeah. Go to the Children's Amusement Park, the Museum of Art or just sit around and watch the swans on the water. Bring good shoes, it's all walking. Also, try and make a trip to the...More

What a beautiful park! There is something for all ages here, especially children. We stopped and toured the sculpture garden and pavillion area. We wish that we had more time to see more of the park. A nice place to come and relax.

We took a half day City Tour which made an 45 minute stop at the Coffee Bar. Bought coffee and beignets (which were awesome) and strolled through the Sculpture Garden. The park is larger than Central Park in NYC.

Beautiful gardens and statuary. Historic restaurant with beignets. Rental bikes and boats. Lots of activities going on. Worth spending time there.

This is always a place we go to every time we visit New Orleans. We take the streetcar from Canal Street and enjoy walking in this relaxing atmosphere. The sculpture area is a "must see" attraction.

The sculture is located in a peaceful outdoor setting. On my next trip, maybe I will explore the othee areas; however, the sculpture setting pulls one in to stay for the duration.

Such a lovely park, and pretty easy to reach via the Canal St cable car. There's a large lake with flowers planted along the shoreline, and several romantic stone bridges. We attended a wedding in the park and it was lovely.

I’m not sure exactly what your question is. They do not have strollers for babies to rent like the zoo. But if you are going you definitely need a stroller because there is quite a lot of walking to be done.
