We hit the City Park at the midpoint of a city tour. The scenery is beautiful. There is a coffee shop there that has the lightest, most tasty beignets that we tried. Even better than Cafe Beignet! It is a wonderful place to stroll, picnic...More

We travelled out to City Park on the 48 Street Car. It took about 30mins. We walked the park and hoped to rent some bikes to tour wider but the Group on deal we had would not be honoured so we did not proceed. Instead...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

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.
