Top Ten Things to Do in City Park

Top Ten Things to Do in City Park 

In the last episode, we covered the history of City Park. Today, we dive into the top ten things to in the park. In addition to things to do and see, we also discuss how to get to New Orleans City Park and what you should bring with you.

We’ll explore the park together. We’ll wander through the oldest grove of oak trees, and share an order (or two!) of beignets at the Morning Call. Next, we’ll play a round of miniature golf and visit the outdoor sculpture garden. If you’re up for it, we’ll take a bike ride and learn about one of City Park’s newest attractions, Big Lake.

All this and more in today’s show!

NOTE: Get your pen and paper ready because you’ll definitely want to take notes…


New Orleans City Park is located in the Midcity neighborhood of New Orleans. The park is accessible by taking the Canal St. streetcar (the red one). It is just a couple miles from the French Quarter and offers plenty of free parking.

Friends of City Park is a local non-profit organization dedicated to improving the park. You can purchase annual memberships which provide free or discounted admission to many of the ticketed venues within City Park, including the annual Celebration in the Oaks.
