SCULPTURE GARDEN AN OASIS OF ART

Home to more than 60 sculptures from artists from all over the world and set in an enticing environment of meandering footpaths, the five-acre Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden in New Orleans City Park makes for a lovely oasis for summertime strolling.

You can also commune with nature and art every Saturday morning at 8 a.m. with a yoga class (first, second and third Saturdays) or a pilates class (fourth Saturday); cost is $5 for the public, and it’s free for members of New Orleans Museum of Art.
