Rentals & Catering

The Peristyle was, quite literally, built for parties – parties with dancing, to be exact. In 1907, architect Paul Andry created this neo-classical open-air pavilion with a colonnade, and the structure has been lovingly maintained over the years through several renovation projects, including one by the generous donation of Mea and Vincent Saia in 1989 and the most recent, in 2012.

The Peristyle overlooks picturesque Bayou Metairie and is one of the most popular venues for wedding ceremonies and wedding photos in the park. The site is also ideally suited for picnics and corporate events, including convention and themed parties.

CITY PARK FACTS:

City Park would not be the place it is today without President Rooseveltís Works Progress Administration efforts during the Great Depression. More than 20,000 men and women were employed to build bridges, roads, fountains, the Botanical Garden and Tad Gormley stadium, and to dig more 11 miles of lagoons - work all done by hand.
