What a wonderful oasis in a hectic city and easy access with Canal streetcar. Beautiful artwork in a lovely park. Free to boot making for a very enjoyable morning. Beignets in the Morning cafe close by were fabulous with the café au lait.

A large array of modern sculpture dispersed throughout a beautiful park area which also includes several small ponds. The sculpture garden included many small alcoves with benches and shady spots for a hot sunny day. The sculpture garden provides also provides many wonderful photographic possibilities.
