The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden in New Orleans’ City Park is a hidden treasure trove. The Sculpture Garden occupies nearly eleven acres in City Park next to the New Orleans Museum of Art. Conceived in 2003, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden doubled in size in 2019 and has grown to include more than 90 sculptures.

The best part is the beautiful sculpture garden is free and open to the public seven days a week, care of the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Foundation. Guided tours are available Fridays, Saturdays, and Mondays at noon. Discover this beautiful urban oasis in New Orleans.
