Located in the West Bank neighborhood of Tall Timbers-Brechtel, this quiet park feels worlds away from the bustle of the French Quarter and Central Business District of New Orleans. It is a calming place to get away from the city for a while and take a walk through the woods or just relax.
The park is currently undergoing some renovations, though, so some parts that were previously open are closed off and full of construction equipment. Still, I found enough to do here for a couple of hours. Between taking walks underneath the huge trees that grow here and feeding the gaggle of ducks and geese that live by the water in the park, it was a fun, relaxing morning activity. It costs a dollar to get in the park, two dollars on weekends. I love the city's parks, so I was happy to pay and support their renovation project. Keep in mind also if you plan to visit that the park is closed on Wednesdays and is open an hour longer (until 6 PM) in the warmer months of the year.
