CITY PARK

new orleans

City Park is a 1,300-acre public park in New Orleans, Louisiana. It is the 87th largest and 20th-most-visited urban public park in the United States. City Park is approximately 50% larger than Central Park in New York City. City Park holds the world's largest collection of mature live oak trees, some older than 600 years in age. The park was founded in 1854, making it the 48th oldest park in the country.

The Peristyle was constructed in 1907. This was a huge building! It was so open and beautiful with the lines of columns surrounding all sides. On the back side there were lion statues on either side of the stairs that lead to one of the many waterways at the park. We were greeted by ducks and a swan hoping we had food. (I didn’t get a shot of the ducks @NoBorderLens was in the way)

I was able to get some Macro shots outside of the botanical gardens before too much fog rolled in. Unfortunately we got there about 30 minutes before the gardens closed.

The Popp Bandstand was constructed in 1917 and dedicated on July 4. It was quite large and had columns surrounding all sides as well.
