City Park in 1967. Photo from nola.com
In honor of #ThrowbackThursday, Nola.com posted 55 pretty cool vintage photos of New Orleans City Park.
City Park, with its 1,300 acres, is the sixth-largest urban park in the United States, half again as large as Central Park in New York City. City Park is approximately 50% larger than New York’s central park.
City Park holds the world’s largest collection of mature live oak trees, some older than 600 years in age. Its founding in 1853 also makes it one of the oldest parks in the country.
