City Park is more of an attraction that I would recommend for locals more than tourists. You'll find a small amusement park, putt putt, a couple golf courses, a frolf course, lots of walking space, an art museum, a botanical garden, and a sculpture garden....More

This park is a nice place to indulge in the beautiful nature scenery. Equally good for individual walks, friends and family gatherings for BBQ, nice stroll with kids. You feel like you traveled to some other city or region once you are in the park....More

We went to this park on a tour of the city of New Orleans. We didn't spend much time here but there appeared to be a lot to do besides just walk around. This would be really fun with little kids that need entertaining.

We walked from our B&B on Esplanade which was about a mile. The park is very nice and lots of sculptures (neo-modern) to be seen. Don't forget the Botanical Gardens next to the park. It was recommended to us. Louisianans go free on Wednesdays and...More

City Park is a gem of NOLA. The historical pavilions that our great-great grandparents fell in love under, the incredible oaks that have witnessed history unfold, the priceless art, the animals, the activities are all congealed to portray New Orleanians for what they are----classical. Must...More

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

Depends on what you want to do. You can go to their page and decide. I recommend public transport (streetcar, bus) with a day ticket for $3, online or better yet from the driver, less hassle. I took a bus tour as well but it... More
