Quite simply the loveliest sculpture garden containing the most delightful and varied collection of sculpture I have ever seen. And I've seen more than a few. Would visit weekly if I lived in NOLA. Could sit there for hours. Wow. Just, wow.

Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake
Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for
family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans
Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel
Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush
Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and
the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix
of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond
