How to get here, and what to do once you find us!

City Park’s new parking area is just one of many new improvements to the grounds. We added 300 parking spaces, and the lots are located directly across from the Botanical Garden – a short walk to the entrance of Celebration in the Oaks.

See the bottom of this page for a map of where to Park. 

Getting to City Park:

The Administration Building's address is 1 Palm Drive, New Orleans, LA 70124; however within its 1300 acres there are many places within the Park that have their own addresses. Please use the map or individual pages on the website for help.
