Tips from locals
We locals like to go up to the river behind the Zoo (an area called the fly) & sit & watch the sunset on the Mississippi River.
Audubon Park is located uptown, across the street from Tulane and Loyola Universities. It's easily accessible by the St. Charles Streetcar. You can also access the Audubon Zoo by walking through the park toward Magazine St.
A lovely park. You may book a horseback riding at Cascade Stables for a relaxing ride through the park.
Gorgeous park, amazing ancient live oaks, broad green spaces, lovely biking/walking loop
Beautiful, giant, old oak trees. A golf course. A track for strolling, running, bikes, etc. Across the avenue from the universities. Audubon Zoo is also attached. Worth making a day out of the visit.
