Named for renowned naturalist John James Audubon, this oak-lined green space is perfect for picnicking, walking, and biking. If golf is your game, there’s a scenic course, and the Audubon Zoo caters to families. The park is located in Uptown New Orleans and easily accessible via the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line. While you’re in the neighborhood, set aside some time to stroll by the stately mansions surrounding the park and browse the shops along Magazine Street.
