Located in historic uptown New Orleans Audubon Park is a favorite spot for recreation, picnics or enjoying a beautiful day. People have visited the Park to take full advantage of this urban oasis.
We locals like to go up to the river behind the Zoo (an area called the fly) & sit & watch the sunset on the Mississippi River.
