Online review site Trip Advisor has announced the 7 Gorgeous Green Spaces in Some of the World’s Biggest Cities. New Orleans City Park is proud to be named one of seven ‘gorgeous spaces’ and the only in New Orleans mentioned. With its many attractions, events, and open green spaces, City Park’s 1300 acres is a dream destination for anyone year-round.
“Parks are critically important components of our cities and towns, offering places to relax, meet up, and escape the business of urban life. These 7 parks are among some of the most beautiful and beloved in the world, located in marquee cities across the globe. Whether you’re a local or a traveler, you can appreciate the depth of what these gorgeous green spaces add to their respective urban areas,” says Trip Advisor.
“If you think you have seen everything NOLA has to offer, then visit City Park. Been there? Go again! The landscape changes with the seasons offering a new experience. I took advantage of the Blue Bike, starting in the French Quarter and it felt easy and safe (using common sense of course). Recommend going early morning or late evening. Put this on your list of things to do on a romantic getaway on a budget.” — TripAdvisor Reviewer
