City Park, a cornerstone in New Orleans family life, helped New Orleans get ranked as one of the "Top 10 American Cities for Family-Friendly Travel" by Forbes earlier this month. With the addition of the Louisiana Children's Museum and expansion/restoration of Storyland, a playground where "youngsters get to see their favorite characters from books and fables come alive," City Park has become nationally recognized as a top of the line, family-friendly attraction.
However, the list of exciting developments at City Park doesn't end there. The New Orleans Museum of Art Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden opened a new expansion last month, Café Du Monde, world famous Beignet vendor, will open another location in CIty Park later this summer, the Carousel Gardens Amusement Park will be getting a new ride this fall, the New Orleans Botanical Garden will feature a new outdoor kitchen this fall as well, and City Park will be hosting Scout Island Scream Park this October, a Halloween festival that will be fun for the whole family.
With already a wide variety of events and entertainment available at City Park, these additions will make the park a go-to spot for any family living in New Orleans.
