    City Park - Botanical Gardens "whistle away"

    I've visted the Botanical Gardens in the city park and was impressed by its lay-out, its beauty and diversity. The Garden contains a Herb Garden, a Frienship Garden, a Butterfly Garden, a Japanese Garden (under construction), a large Palm Garden and much more. It is the first garden I have seen with a "train garden": in a garden lay-out that mimics the lay out of New Orleans itself, small copies of past and actual trains and streetcars run. A must see for every garden lover, train lover and child.

    This is a lovely place, and very green in the summer. Filled with flora from all over the world, designed in the WPA and art deco period, it is a quiet respite from the noise and activity of Bourbon Street.
