Audubon Park is a city park located in the historic uptown neighborhood of New Orleans. For more than a century, people have enjoyed this urban oasis, with its picnic shelters, playgrounds, tranquil jogging path, and beautiful views. Known as one of the most popular routes for running throughout New Orleans, upwards of 3,000 people run under a leafy canopy of live oaks and alongside a little lagoon, each day. This loop will not only take you around the park’s 1.8 mile jogging path, but also around the famous Audubon Zoo. Home to over 2,000 animals, the zoo covers 58 acres of land. For a longer run, head up to the campus of Tulane University, just across St. Charles Ave.
Public transportation is available via the St. Charles Trolley.

Gorgeous run! Took a cab from downtown, ran the park and then ran back to downtown via Magazine and Prytania. Overall about 8 miles. Just lovely.
