What a true gem in the middle of a major city! Audubon Park is wonderful green space within the city and is easily accessible. There are great paved paths for walking, making it easy for visitors of all ages and abilities. The paths take you past stately old trees and there is plenty of wildlife to look at as you walk. My absolute favorite place in the park is The Tree of Life. It’s magnificent and I can imagine it would be fun for children to play on the large exposed roots. If you are visiting New Orleans and want a change of pace and do something more relaxing, the Park and The Tree of Life in particular, is a great destination I would happily recommend to anyone, friends or family of any age.
