Activity Overview

City Park is a 1,300 acre public park located in New Orleans, Louisiana. It is one of the largest public parks in the United States, and is one of the city's top tourist attractions due to the wide variety of activities that it offers visitors of all ages. Popular areas of the park include an amusement park, a fairytale-themed playground, a botanical garden, an art museum, a sculpture garden, golf courses, a miniature golf complex, and its beautiful lake. If your family likes to be active, you can also get some exercise using its tennis center, track, softball and soccer fields, disc golf course and paved trails.

Things to Do

  • Get some fresh air and enjoy nature on a family walk through the Couturie Forest or by renting a boat to explore Big Lake.
  • Take your child to one of the playgrounds to slide, climb, and swing to their hearts' content! They'll love Storyland, which features larger-than-life fairytale sculptures.
