City Park Craft Projects

Create fun craft projects that remind you of New Orleans City Park with these three downloadable activities.

Botanical Garden Butterfly

Everyone loves to spend time in the New Orleans Botanical Garden Butterfly Garden. Did you know October is butterfly month? Keep your eyes peeled in the early autumn months for the many types of butterflies all around the Park who have been growing all spring in their cocoons. In the meantime, make your own colorful butterflies at home.

Big Lake Frog

City Park is full of frogs in its 11 miles of lagoons. You may not be able to always see them but if you close your eyes, you can hear them make a symphony of music especially at sunrise and sunset.

Spring Time Wildflower

A few times a year, City Park fields bloom with wildflowers. The cosmos flowers are orange, pink, white, and purple. The Park is full of color and both people and bees love them.
