New Orleans Botanical Garden

Today's New Orleans Botanical Garden has its roots in the Great Depression and is one of the few remaining examples of public garden design from the WPA and Art Deco Period.  The garden contains over 2,000 varieties of plants from all over the world set among the nation's largest stand of mature live oaks. The site contains the recently renovated Conservatory, several theme gardens containing aquatics, ornamental trees and shrubs, perennials, and the new New Orleans Historic Train Garden.  The garden also encompasses the Pavilion of the Two Sisters, the Garden Study Center, and the rebuilt Lath House.

Getting to the Garden
The garden entrance is located at the Pavilion of the Two Sisters on Victory Avenue in City Park, behind the New Orleans Museum of Art and across Victory Avenue from the City Park Tennis Center. Free parking is available along Victory Avenue and at the Tennis Center.
