Destinations in NOLA

A view of Audubon Park from Tulane's campus

Situated in scenic uptown New Orleans, our students are right across the street from one of the city’s most beautiful parks. Audubon Park is a favorite with locals for its scenic live oaks, jogging track and golf course. The park is the perfect place to relax and take in a nice day.

Another nearby green space is the Fly. Located behind the Audubon Zoo, the Fly overlooks the Mississippi River and is a great place for crawfish boils, barbecues or just a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.
