From the 1930s to today, we're proud to offer the city carefully cultivated gardens. Open year round, ten acres of gardens and art await you. Whether you are a local or a tourist, make sure to take a leisurely stroll through our many gardens. 

The mission of the New Orleans Botanical Garden is to cultivate, promote, and inspire the knowledge, love and appreciation of plants through educational programs and exhibits and to evaluate, introduce, and distribute new plant materials suitable for cultivation in the Gulf South region.
