Welcome to the New Orleans Botanical Garden
From the 1930s to today, we're proud to offer the city carefully cultivated gardens. Open year round, twelve acres of gardens and art await you. Whether you are a local or a tourist, make sure to take a leisurely stroll through our many gardens. We know you'll see something new each visit and always leave with a smile.
