Escape To Audubon Park For A Beautiful New Orleans Nature Scene

New Orleans’ beloved Uptown park has lived in the shadows of City Park’s fame since 1871, when the city purchased the land. Did you know that the original name for Audubon Park was “Upper City Park?”  Over the years, the 350-acre park has blossomed into one of the most popular urban parks in the country, home to countless ancient oaks and the iconic Audubon Zoo. You could easily spend an entire day here and still feel like you’ve only caught a glimpse of what Audubon offers. Luckily, this historic park is open daily, so you can get your nature fix on whenever you’d like.
