Everything You Need To Know About The New Orleans Botanical Gardens

The gardens have more than 2000 plants from around the world.

The New Orleans Botanical Garden is a must-visit for tourists and locals. Open year-round, twelve acres with more than 2000 plants await you. Depending on what season you visit, you can see which flowers are in bloom on their official site.

The gardens include a simulated tropical rainforest, a butterfly walk, a rose garden, a succulent room, a Japanese garden, and their newest exhibit: a New Orleans Historic Train Garden, where visitors can listen to jazz music while exploring streetcars and freight trains. 

The mission of the Botanical Garden is to cultivate, promote and inspire the knowledge, love, and appreciation of plants. You’ll spend around three hours visiting the main attractions, so plan ahead!

And that’s not it; they also host fun events you can join, including plant sales, live music concerts, and even a local art market. Check out all of their events
