Great place for a stroll, beautiful land for picnics, a two mile track that has shady areas! Love the children’s park by the dog park! Always a good time on Thursday’s when the bands play!

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.
