Date Night at City Putt

What a success!

Date Night at City Putt on February 13 was so much for for everyone who attended! There were treats and roses and trinkets for everyone who came to Date Night. Plus we took cute photos of you and your date. See some of those photos by clicking on the link on this page.

Weren't able to make the event? Don't worry! We're going to host another Date Night at City Putt again soon.

Looking for more date night possibilities at City Park? Here are some great ideas!

New Orleans City Park is a romantic place no matter what season it is in New Orleans. The Park is a wonderful place to create memories!

PERFECT date-night ideas:
Celebration in the Oaks and a round of Mini Golf!

OR A round of Mini Golf and hot beignets from Morning Call.

OR Swing on a double sided swing at the Goldring Woldenberg Great Lawn while drinking Cafe au Lait. And these options are all within walking distance of each other!

There's also: walking hand-in-hand through shade from ancient oaks, the New Orleans Botanical Garden, gondola rides through Park lagoons, walks in the the five-acre Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden, plus so much more!

New Orleans Gondola: City Park's so romantic there have been over 315 proposals on the gondola alone and more people get married in City Park than anywhere else in New Orleans).

City Putt: Sunday, Tuesday - Thursday: 10am to 10pm (last rental at 9pm) Monday: only open for corporate/private events Friday & Saturday: 10am to midnight (last rental at 11pm)

Join City Park: Spring Opening of Carousel Gardens Amusement Park, Opening of the New Ladybug Roller

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.
