“City Park is as magical and unique as the city of New Orleans. The 1,300-acre outdoor oasis has enchanted New Orleanians since 1854, making it one of the nation’s oldest urban parks. Each year, millions of visitors stroll under the same historic oaks and picturesque moss canopies that served as the backdrop for dances, concerts and even gentlemanly duels or “affaires d’honneur” for generations.Today’s City Park offers something for everyone. Stop and smell the roses in the Botanical Garden. Enjoy art in the open-air Besthoff Sculpture Garden. Stroll through the sprawling green space or get active on the park’s biking, jogging, and walking paths. Practice your serve on one of 26 tennis courts”

“Want to see the ships on the Mississippi? Head here with a daiquiri from the whole on the corner or Carrollton Ave and St Charles and watch all the boats head down the Mississippi River. I’d suggest this in the morning or evening during the summer as it’s super hot out there”

“Woldenberg Riverfront Park is 16 acres of sprawling green space stretching between the Mississippi River and the historic French Quarter. Begin or end your walk in the Park with a visit to Audubon Aquarium of the Americas or Entergy Giant Screen Theater, both adjacent to the Park. The riverside jogging path is popular with city dwellers, as are the sculptures and artwork. Don't be surprised if the sights include a strolling band, impromptu second line or a bustling festival! The prime location makes Woldenberg Riverfront Park a perfect setting to escape and unwind.”
