New Orleans is infamous for its spooky past, filled with tales of voodoo, vampires, ghosts, and witches. During this walking tour, save time with a guide who knows the quickest routes around the Big Easy and brings the folklore and history of the city to life, all during the creepiest time of day—the night. Plus, a centrally located meeting point makes for a hassle-free, fun evening.

Nice place to walk around in City Park but nothing special compared to other Botanical Gardens that I’ve seen.

Decided to get away from the hustle and bustle of the French quarter and spend a leisurely day at the New Orleans botanical garden. It’s located in the city park which is 1300 acres large. The botanical garden section is 12 acres with lots of beautiful flowers, Japanese gardens, cactus gardens, lots and lots to see and enjoy.

This was a nice enjoyable walk. It wasn't as extensive as either the aboreteum or conservatory back home. Unfortunately, FREE Wednesdays are only for locals. parking was good. Enjoyed the little Japanese Garden and the Vegetable garden. A few nice sculptures, but this is not the Sculpture Garden that's included with the Art Museum. Butterfly garden wasn't as hoped. Greenhouse had two huge alligator gars in pond.

It had been many years, since we visited the New Orleans Botanical Gardens, located in City Park, but in March, we finally got back. Our previous visit was for a family wedding there, and the Botanical Gardens was still coming back from Hurricane Katrina. It was open, well partially open, but much had changed by this time. It still was not back to its former glory, but then the same can still be said for much of City Park, and New Orleans in general. We enjoyed the Japanese Gardens exhibit the most, but think that was more because of the display itself - however it was a very tranquil place, just to pause. I had wanted to see the Train Garden, but it was not open. The docent indicated that it would be soon enough, so hope to see it, on our next visit to New Orleans. The entrance building looked freshly painted, and it was easy to see which exhibits were new, or freshly done. Compared to the vast 140 acre Desert Botanical Garden, or the one in Tokyo, or Sydney, New Orleans’ Botanical Gardens is rather small, but then the entirety of City Park is mostly a botanical garden, to begin with. A very worthwhile stop on our visit to City Park, and I think that it is coming along nicely. I would dedicate at least two hours to this lovely, tranquil garden.
