I spent four happy hours visiting the attractions in wonderful City Park. So much to do, and I didn't see it all. If you love gardens, outdoor sculpture, fine art, and urban parks, I think you'll love City Park.

Nice mix of things to do/see, good area to wander around in, and interesting seasonal art installations. Gets a little brown as the weather warms up, and can be fairly busy. But good for a taste of the outdoors in the middle of the city.

Amazing sculptures and scenic park. You could spend all day here but 2 hours is also fine. We cycled around and returned a second day.

What a wonderful place. It is full of beautiful trees and lots of things to do for all ages. Great place for families since they have so many rental options. Place was very clean. Liked that they have a restaurant there.

We stayed within walking distance to the park, and boy are we glad we did! So much to see and do. The NOMA(museum) was a surprise! We also visited the sculpture park, amusement park, paddle boats, mini golf and the playground. This is a gem!

The park is a must see. It is beautiful, creative and interesting. We took a tour and this was a stop. We really enjoyed seeing another piece of NOLA that wasn't so main stream. There is a lot to do while you relax!

Visited 3 times. Particular highlights for me - the NOMA Sculpture Garden, Museum of Art exhibits, and the China Lights exhibit. Morning Call Cafe provided a lovely respite from all the walking. Will definitely return on my next visit to New Orleans!!

This is a beautiful park. We really enjoyed the sculpture garden and were disappointed that the Botanical Garden was closed. We played miniature golf for fun and had some laughs. Definitely worth a ride on the streetcar.

We got there too early and we didn't get a full appreciation of all the colours. However it was still very entertaining

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
