The park also is home to the city's soccer stadium and the New Orleans Museum of Art, considered one of the finest art museums in the South. Rent a boat to explore the park's 18 km (11 mi) of lagoons, lakes, and bayous. Bikes are also available for rent.

City Park has it all. Most beautiful landscape, with walking and biking trails. Boat and bike rentals. Amusement park, putt putt golf, so many great activities. Take a stroll through the botanical and sculpture garden or visit our wonderful museum. City Park is my hang out spot, i love it!
This park has a great sculpture garden. Great walking path in the sculpture garden. You can get yourself lost in the garden. There are now two sides of the garden. A great lagoon. Now I think the lagoon needs to be cleaned and a little clear. They could use more variety and diversity in their staff. It's amazing a 60% black city still manages to have spaces with no Black employees or managers etc etc
