City Park, New Orleans, LA


City Park, New Orleans is as unique as the city of New Orleans. The 1,300-acre outdoor park has been a New Orleanians favorite 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 for generations.

It is pretty impressive to see such a well developed park right near the downtown of a major city!  In addition to walking and cycling paths, there are lakes, birds, playing fields, rental buggies and more.  Plus, the NO Museum of Art is located here, as well as the Botanical Gardens.  Guess we’ll have to do make another visit!
