We always have nice visits at this park. We had my son's 1st birthday party at the Carousel. Sometimes there are a few too many dogs. But, it's a great park to enjoy flying a kite, relaxing or the wonderful light show during the Holiday's.

I've taken my kids to fish and fly kites at the park. When the park isn't overrun with soccer tournaments, it's a nice park to visit. We did catch and release a handful of perch.

This park offers spacious acres to picnic or whatever. It has a ground cushioned area for small children to play, it also has an exercise area for teens & adults. This park has much to offer and it doesn't cost a dime.

It is easy to drive to either via Veteran's Blvd or W Napoleon Ave. Do you have an address? Also City Park towards New Orleans is also very pretty.
