Tips from the community

Pontchartrain Park is in the Gentilly neighborhood on the banks of both a canal leading through the city and Lake Pontchartrain. It is about 1 square mile and encompasses a few lakes to hang out by, a golf course, a ballpark, and a historic neighborhood. Southern University at New Orleans also borders the park.

Some are compact oases as small as a city block, while others are lush botanical escapes on the banks of the river with babbling streams and ancient oak trees.
