A Walk in the Park: City Park New Orleans Audio Tour
Welcome to a grand urban pleasure garden; home to the largest stand of old-growth oak trees on Earth. These magnificent Southern Live Oaks, dripping with Spanish moss, are silent witnesses to over 700 years of natural history and local culture.
We will explore a mesmerizing landscape brimming with wildlife, picturesque bayous, secluded fountains, romantic stories, Neo-Classical and Art-Deco architecture, WPA-era gardens and bridges, Enrique Alferez sculpture, and “flying horses.” City Park represents the heart and soul of New Orleans. Join me as we celebrate the successful relationship between nature’s splendor and humanity’s creative achievements.
The tour is ready whenever you are and the audio plays automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smartphone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline.
