Run, bike, or enjoy a day with the pup in this beautiful 2 mile loop in the historic uptown district of New Orleans. This is a great place to get a workout or relax.

Audubon Park offers an oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle of New Orleans. The park offers a 1.8 mile paved loop for running, biking, or taking the dog for a walk. The loop surrounds the Audubon golf course in the center of uptown New Orleans. Audubon Park is dotted with beautiful ponds, stone arched bridges, and amazing oak trees. Its the perfect place to chill in the many gazebos and benches that line the waters edge. The park is best in the early morning before the Louisiana heat and humidity roll in. The early morning fog is also beautiful for photographers.

Plenty of wildlife from turtles, ducks and blue heron can also be found in the park. If you are more into photography than a running, bring the camera, because there are plenty of opportunities for some great shots. The ponds are perfect for the kids to feed the ducks or for the pup to take a dip. The park offers plenty of fields to play fetch with the dog, play catch with the kids or lay out for a tan. At different intervals along the paved running loop, there is different workout stations to get a full workout during your run or walk. The park also has an outer loop that is unpaved, which can give you more distance to your run.

After your workout cool down with a snowball treat from the local snowball stand near the park parking lot. The trail is open from sun up to sun down. If you can't park in the parking lot, you can park anywhere on the neighborhood streets surrounding the park.
