Whether you are planning a graduation party or kids’ birthday parties, New Orleans’ Audubon Park has so much to offer. Audubon Park has three Shelters that are available for rental: Shelter #11 and Shelter #12. Shelter #10 reservations will be accepted two months in advance of the event date, unless the event is a race. Races may be booked up to one year in advance of the event date.

Review our Tips for a Successful Event.

If you would like to use Audubon Park or Riverview without renting a shelter, there are areas for the general public to picnic. Water and electricity are not provided. Permits are required for parties of 25 or more people. Spacewalks must be approved by the Shelter Coordinator with proof of insurance, and a generator must be used for power. Contact the shelter coordinator for more information.
