I didn’t find this park to be very cool or beautiful. It did have some interesting and photo worthy low hanging branches but I found it to be a little dirty and unappealing. Maybe if I had kids or it was completely decorated for Christmas...More

Our breakfast waiter suggested taking the Canal Street trolley to the end. Walk down the entrance road and you're at the Art Museum with the sculpture garden to the left. Unbelievable place. We didn't have time but one can rent the pedal boats and ride...More

We biked about 6 miles from the Bywater area to get to the park and it was definitely worth it! Beautiful and spacious, easy to be in a private area or out with the crowds. I loved the sculpture garden! We had beignets at Morning...More

Spent some time here recently while in NOLA. Had been recommended to us by a local. What a nice way to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Take the Canal streetcar all the way there.

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

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.

Best bet is to call the city our organizers of the event and ask.

Hi, I’m not from NOLA but the city park does have a web site and maybe the event calendar may provide more information. I hope that may help.
