Do not skip this! What a beautiful relaxing place! There is a statue garden, a place where you can rent paddle boats and a café. Maybe more but that's all I saw. There is also a frisbee golf course. Yep. I don't know what it...More

Easy to get to using the street car from Canal Street it takes you right to the entrance. The Oak Trees are huge and beautiful. The Sculpture park is worth a visit, there is no entrance fee so you can pick up a map of...More

We encountered this amazing expanse of open nature during a bike tour, so we didn't get to explore it fully. It's large and green. We visited a cafe with refreshing beverages and beignets that were lighter and crispier than you-know-where; and the powdered-sugar shakers were...More

One of my favorite local parks. Don't miss walking around the sculpture garden close to NOMA. And the amusement park, though small, is great for small children and teens. Putt putt course is very cute and fun (2 different courses to try). The architecture is...More

I WAS there 15 years ago and fell in love with the sculpture park, it was as amazing as it was then. The whole area is just beautiful.

If you have the time, there are several bike tours or just bike rentals in and around the French Quarter. From there if you ride along N. Rampart to Esplanade Avenue you will ride past one of the city's major cemeteries. Just past that is...More

Lovely walk through the park , people having barbecues to celebrate Independence Day. Loved the 804 year old Oak and lakes. Turtles too

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
