Destinations in NOLA

A blooming sunflower in Audubon Park.

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.
