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.

This park offers so much beauty around the lake and a bird sanctuary. The grounds are well-maintained. The boardwalk is beautiful and the nature available at no charge is incredible. My boys love feeding the ducks and we saw many other species of the pond...More

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.
