New Orleans City Park Awarded Accolades:  Labor Day Weekend Discounts for the Public

New Orleans City Park was awarded two awards this week. City Park is excited to announce these accolades and pass on the joy to the public with discounts at three attractions for the Labor Day weekend.

City Park’s City Putt miniature golf course was voted Best Golf Course in New Orleans by the readers of Gambit Weekly. We thank the public for your votes and look forward to seeing even more smiling faces on the mini links. City Putt is open Tuesday through Sunday and especially late on weekends closing at midnight. Gambit readers also voted City Park the Best Place to Have a First Date. We see many date nights at City Putt for New Orleanians in the future. See this link for details.

City Park was named, by Goodful on BuzzFeed, one of 16 parks worldwide that are, “worth taking a detour” to see. We are in great company with parks from all over the world including parks in Hong Kong and Shanghai. We are thrilled Buzzfeed is helping us in our push to make New Orleans City Park a world class park. See this link for details.

Hot off the heels of these awards the public will be able to take advantage of discounts at these three City Park attractions to help us celebrate: City Putt, Carousel Gardens Amusement Park, and Storyland.
