New Orleans City Park is proud to announce the development of its first mobile app, funded by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation, to help you increase your health and wellness in a safe outdoor environment!  We have partnered with OuterSpatial, an app that’s free to download and easy to use as a guide to finding all of your favorite City Park outdoor activities – trails, points of interest, outings, membership perks, and more.

Come join us at Couturie Forest & Arboretum for a pre-launch member-exclusive event, download and experience the app, take a hike, and reward yourself with a cold refreshment provided by Gordon Biersch Brewery.  Please bring your own cup to be extra eco-friendly.
