  • If you go to the park check out 'The Fly' which is the walk along the Mississippi. Be sure to check out the Tree of Life, it is a massive, beautiful Oak Tree located to the left of the zoo (if you are...  read more »
  • Great place to bring your kids or workout. I love doing the loop onto the river. Trees are beautiful. 
  • We only had about an hour to spend here, but it was a beautiful walk, lots of trees and water. Great place to relax and have a picnic if we'd had the time. there's also a golf course and a zoo within ...  read more »
  • I love to come here. I usually come a few times a week in the spring or fall when it's not so hot. The track is a 1.82 mile loop with ample room for lots of people—walkers, joggers, stroller-pushers, dog-walkers, cyclists, roller-bladers, etc. Foot traffic travels both directions, but if you are coming on a bike, make sure you go counter-clockwise and stay in your lane. If you get curious about the cute little bridge into the interior of the park, be aware that on the other end of the bridge is a golf course. I didn't notice the signs the first time, and walked across the whole golf course before reaching the HUGE sign at the other side that translates to "you might die if you get hit in the head with a golf ball, and it will be your fault because you didn't pay attention to this giant sign." Also inside the track is a small body of water, and on the other side, Ochsner Island, aka Bird Island, with thousands of birds in several species. In the springtime, hundreds of ducks line up on the shore trackside, all about a foot apart. It's pretty awesome. There are also times when flocks from other areas take temporary housing and fill up the island even further. There are at least three rest areas around the track with bathroom, water fountain, and bench, so it's very friendly to all fitness levels. I even attended a Walk for Multiple Sclerosis there. There are also many many trash cans. I'm not sure what the lighting is like at night, but they have a lot of stations along the track where you can call for help if you need it. The parking is ample with an in-park lot (accessible from Magazine St), street parking to the north and south (on Magazine and on St. Charles), and even more parking in a lot across Magazine St near the zoo/tea garden/pool. And there are tons of Pokestops here, in case that's your thing. "Squirtles for days," said another visitor.
  • Another amazing park in the New Orleans area. I love them all. Loved biking and walking the path around the golf course. The golf course was great to work on your short game but even better viewing the hand of God in all his creations.
  • Should be nicknamed squirtle park for all the squirtles you can catch on pokemon go
  •  Beautiful park. Really enjoyed running along the path in the early morning. It's located in a great area and has a pond and lots of birds, beautiful trees and a golf course.
  • Great place to take the Family. Lots of fun things to do. Check out Cool Zoo!
