Volunteer

We rely on volunteers like you to keep the park looking great.

City Park is a New Orleans treasure. For more than 150 years, the Park has served as a natural sanctuary for New Orleanians — a place to escape from city life without ever leaving home. With more than 1,300 acres, it is also one of the largest urban parks in the United States.

Our volunteers are essential to the day-to-day operation of City Park. When you volunteer your time as an individual or as part of a group, it is one of the most valuable contributions you can make to City Park, and you are building a better, stronger park for all of our visitors to enjoy.

TWEETS FROM THE PARK:

CITY PARK FACTS:

At her request, upon her death in 1914, New Orleans philanthropist Sara Lavinia Hyamsí jewelry collection (valued at $30,000/at that time) was sold and the proceeds were used to construct a fountain for the children of New Orleans. The fountain is located inside the gates of Carousel Gardens.
