Most of the City Park New Orleans neighborhood is the actual park itself, which is huge. But there is a selection of residences south of the park, along Bayou St. John and off of City Park Avenue. The area is home to not only some great architecture but a wonderful selection of local eateries as well. If walking to dinner is your idea of nirvana, this neighborhood should be on your shortlist.
The predominant architecture that you’ll find around City Park is raised basement, raised cottages and Arts & Crafts cottages. The few streets that make up the neighborhood are not busy unless someone is trying to park while they eat at a restaurant along Carrollton.
Need off-street parking? You’ve got a 50/50 shot at finding a home with either a garage or driveway. But if public transportation is your thing, you’ll have easy access to the streetcar line or bus service.
Also in the neighborhood, you’ll find plenty of places to play or eat out. It’s an amazing community for outdoor lovers, with paddleboards, pedal boats and kayaks all available to rent right in the park. Take a jog or bike ride along one of the many paths that wind through the 1,300 acres of City Park. Visit the New Orleans Museum of Art. Take the dog over to City Bark. Or get in a game of miniature golf at City Putt. Top it off with an order of beignets and a cup of cafe au lait at Cafe duMonde.
