Overall: They have free concerts from time to time and the Christmas lights are a wonderful family tradition. The carousel, lake, ball fields, and profusion of trails have lots to offer.

This park has it all from concessions, ponds with ducks, carousel, and excellent fields. We come here every year for a soccer tournament and the fields are wonderful. Great place to spend an afternoon.

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.

Lafreniere Park is a little over 5 miles from the airport. So not within walking distance. Rent a car or take a cab. I would suggest rent a car and get around and see all the sites.
