Did you know:
New Orleans is home to the largest municipal park in the entire country? City Park was founded in the 1800’s and has earned national attention for its amazing and lush landscaping, beautiful waterfowl and the famous “‘Dueling Oaks”. Legend has it these two enormous trees once stood watch over Creole swordsmen as they practiced their craft and showed off their skills. Sadly, one of the "Dueling Oaks" was lost in a hurricane in 1949, but one of the historic trees still stands.
A streetcar ride away from the French Quarter, City Park is a must-see for New Orleans visitors.
