Did you know?

BAYOU METAIRIE once was connected to the Mississippi River…

There’s hundreds of species of birds and thousands of other CRITTERS in the Park….

The PERISTYLE was built in 1907 for bands and dancing…

Oaks are deciduous trees, so most oaks lose their leaves. But LIVE OAK TREES get their new leaves at about the same time they drop the old ones – they never have that dead winter tree look. So that’s why they call it a “live oak.”

The PARK IS FOR ALL and garners about 16 million visits a year….

During the WPA (WORKS PROGRESS ADMINISTRATION) over ten miles of lagoons were dug by hand…

So COME ON, COME ON, COME ON……Let’s take a little ride, on the City Park Train.
