So much happening this month!
Welcome the spring season to City Park with a trip to Carousel Gardens Amusement Park. Carousel Gardens Amusement Park is fun for all ages! The Amusement Park features 2 cafés and 17 rides guaranteed to put a smile on your face, including the Park’s namesake antique wooden carousel.
PLUS! The much awaited Ladybug Roller Coaster is back in City Park. The coaster was fabricated in Deggendorf, Germany. To ride the Ladybug Roller Coaster, there is a minimum height of 52" or 40" with a paid adult. The new roller coaster is larger and faster with a larger footprint than its predecessor. The Ladybug has 10 cars and each car has 2 seats. The old Ladybug Roller Coaster was closed due to structural corrosion caused by Hurricane Katrina and was dismantled in August of 2013.
Contact the Park at (504) 483-9458 to book a Ladybug Roller Coaster themed corporate event or birthday party.
Parker’s Pizza opens in the Amusement Park selling pizza to everyone! The City Park mascot, Parker, prides himself on making the pizzas. (Don’t worry, Parker’s supervised by trained professionals.) Parker’s Pizza will impress your taste buds with traditional Italian ingredients. You’ll love the garlic buttered crust and zesty signature pizza sauce while craving the freshest mozzarella we use on each pizza. Parker’s Pizza offers pizza by the slice, a 16” large pizza, and an assortment of desserts. Parker’s Pizza also serves beverages, including beer and wine.
Season Passes to the Amusement Park are now available. Find out more info at this link.
