“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”

Garden
“I love plants, so this may be less interesting to those who don't, but the garden contains a butterfly garden, native plants, a japanese garden and much more. I think it costs a few bucks to go in, but you can buy beer and wine to drink while you stroll!”

River
“Rent a kayak, canoe, or paddle board and coast along Bayou St John in Mid City. See the city from a different perspective! The Bayou is home to a wide range of flora and fauna. Maybe you’ll spot a pelican swooping down for a fish, or spy the egrets, herons, ducks, loons and more. The route sweeps through residential areas with an array of architectural styles from French Colonial to lavish modern manses. Or enjoy the sights and sounds of cultural events from the serenity of the bayou. Total route distance is about 8 easy miles round trip, perfect for beginners and experts. Its super fun, and we kayak in the Bayou all the time! Pro tip, ask me for a small ice chest to take with you. ”
