New Orleans City Park reviews
We took the trolley which was fine but just plan on lots of time if you wish to do so. All we did was walk into the park, passed the gorgeous museum, and visited the Botanical Gardens. There is much..... more »
It’s a beautiful park and very large. Lots of people using the walking/bike paths. Ever kids playing volleyball and sitting by the water enjoying the day. more »
City Park has it all. Most beautiful landscape, with walking and biking trails. Boat and bike rentals. Amusement park, putt putt golf, so many great activities. Take a stroll through the botanical and sculpture garden or visit our wonderful museum. City Park is my hang out spot, i love it!
This park has a great sculpture garden. Great walking path in the sculpture garden. You can get yourself lost in the garden. There are now two sides of the garden. A great lagoon. Now I think the lagoon needs to be cleaned and a little clear. They could use more variety and diversity in their staff. It's amazing a 60% black city still manages to have spaces with no Black employees or managers etc etc
