Nature / Park
Founded in 1853 and spanning 526 hectares (1,300 acres) New Orleans City Park is one of the largest and oldest urban parks in America. Stroll through this green space to discover the botanical garden, sculpture garden, and golf courses. Check out the antique wooden carousel in the park's amusement area, which is more than 100 years old and one of the few of its kind left in the country. The park also is home to the city's soccer stadium and the New Orleans Museum of Art, considered one of the finest art museums in the South. Rent a boat to explore the park's 18 km (11 mi) of lagoons, lakes, and bayous. Bikes are also available for rent. Plan your visit to New Orleans City Park and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our New Orleans vacation generator.
