Visited the park as part of our city tour with YMT Vacations. Had a snack at the restaurant near the sculpture area of the park. Sculptures interesting. From a tourist's prospective, NOLA is blessed to have such a large, beautiful public area.

Visited City Park on a recent visit to NOLA. Went to the museum, the Sculpture Garden and the Botanical Garden, The Botanical Garden probably has potential, but virtually nothing was in bloom in February. The museum has a real mixture of exhibits and easily could be a whole day excursion. Not a lot of things that would interest children, however.

We spend a day in the park walking and viewing different points of interest. I would suggest taking the train to see the entire park.

We drove through the park one morning to see what it was all about. There are a lot of interesting things to do for both young and old. Art Museum, Sculpture Garden, Playground, Amusement Park, Botanical Garden and lots of parking. Looked like a great place to spend a few hours if you have children or just want a break... More

Simply loved this park because it offered so much. Took the City Park Trolley to the park (a nice part of the trip itself). Before we walked north we went two blocks south to the amazing cemetery (MUST SEE) then headed back to the park had beignets at the café, visited the amazing sculptural garden (FREE), Botanical Garden ($6), and...

City Park is massive and beautiful with varying landscapes. I come here for runs, I take family and friends around when they're visiting (try Morning Call for beignets that rival Cafe du Monde!), and just generally go for walks when it's lovely outside.

The New Orleans city park is HUGE! The oaks and spanish moss are gorgeous, the multitude of ducks and water features are beautiful and the Art Museum and Sculpture Garden are full of unique and beautiful art pieces. The beignets at the cafe are delicious and the atmosphere makes them even tastier. The city park is a nice change from... More

We were looking for something to do and found in a brochure City Putt in City Park. The Park was easy to find. We drove around the Park to take in the sites and other activities they have to offer. There are two 18 hole courses which we play only one. Each hole had a theme city/ town on the... More

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.
