Something for Everyone

City Park has something for everyone! For decades, nature lovers have explored magnificent flora along the meandering pathways of the New Orleans Botanical Garden. Athletes are drawn to the park’s wide-open green spaces, multiple athletic fields and active recreational sports leagues. Golfers tee up at City Park’s scenic 18-hole golf course, and tennis players hit the clay and hard courts at the City Park / Pepsi Tennis Complex. Outdoorsy types enjoy afternoons boating on Big Lake or wandering beautiful Couturie Forest. Kids and families love Storyland’s colorful storybook sculptures. The famous antique carousel – the centerpiece of the Carousel Gardens Amusement Park – is a favorite among visitors of all ages. Beignet aficionados and night owls get a taste of authentic New Orleans at the 24-hour Morning Call. Whether you’re an artist, an athlete, a nature lover, a kid, or just a kid at heart, there’s a special place inside the park for you!
