The Charm of New Orleans City Park

Visiting New Orleans in the fall is a great time to take advantage of the outdoors and an opportunity to spend a day in City Park. The park is easily accessible from your Garden District Bed and Breakfast via the St. Charles Ave and Canal Street streetcars.

The first thing that you notice upon arriving at the park, are the tremendous live oaks, it is the largest collection in the world and they are just one element that lends to the park’s allure.  The park has so much to offer, there are pedal boats & even a gondola for rent to explore all the lagoons that meander through the park.  You can also rent bicycles if you would prefer wandering the green space by land. If you’re just looking to relax, there are also endless spots to lay down a blanket and have a picnic…eat, drink, read a book, take a nap, enjoy this massive outdoor oasis in the middle of an urban metropolis (one of the largest urban parks in the country).
