“Walk, run, or bike the 1.8 mile loop at Audubon Park. The park includes an exercise circuit, a lake that is home to local ducks, beautiful Spanish moss-covered oaks, 2 playgrounds, and benches which make nice spots to relax with a book. Plenty of room for picnicking as well. Located between St Charles Ave and Magazine St, across the street from Loyola University. A short 1.6 miles from our front door. ”
