The house is located at the crossroads of two wonderful neighborhoods referred to as Mid-City and City Park. Mid-City, which is known as the "heart of New Orleans" is a place where locals live as a neighborhood rather than just an area of New Orleans. It is a place filled with a community spirit that resonates with its residents old and new. Mid-City has become the new, revitalized and young neighborhood of New Orleans and is attracting young professionals from all over the country who have recently relocated to New Orleans working in the medical fields. With the nearby addition of shopping centers and restaurants, Whole Foods, expansion of City Park attractions and the construction of the new medical facilities on Tulane Avenue and the Veterans Affairs Hospital, Mid-City is the place to be!
Just across the street is City Park, one of the nation’s oldest urban parks with 1,300-acres of beautiful grounds, serene water gardens, ancient live oak trees and magical offerings. The park features the New Orleans Museum of Art, putt-putt golf course, regular 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, play grounds Botanical Gardens, Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Train Garden, City Splash, Pan American Stadium and various music and theatrical productions throughout the year. Featured in Bird Watching Magazine, over 280 species of birds have been spotted in the Park each year as well as numerous other wildlife species. The park also offers a host of family-friendly activities, including children’s larger-than-life storybook sculptures in “Storyland” and the one-of-a-kind antique wooden carousel in the Carousel Gardens Amusement Park – a hand-carved marvel of “flying horses” that has been a family favorite for nearly 100 years.
Enjoy a beautiful day on the water with pedal boat rentals, gondola rides, fishing, wildlife viewing, kayaking, and canoeing. Walking/jogging trails, biking paths, horse back riding, yoga, bike and surrey rentals, basketball courts, soccer fields, roller blading, and more are just some of the many outdoor activities available in City Park. Spend a lazy afternoon with the ducks, swans and geese on the park’s historic bayous and lagoons. City Park is home to the world’s largest stand of mature live ancient oaks, modern art and everything in between. Don't miss experiencing all it has to offer visitors of all ages!
