Due to ongoing violations of City COVID-19 guidelines on large gatherings, social distancing, and masks, Audubon will be closing the riverside open green space portion of Audubon Riverview Park (the Fly) closest to the entrance of the Fly at 1 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
Other areas of the Fly will remain open, including the riverside sidewalks and benches and the sports fields. Audubon will continue to monitor and adhere to City guidance on large outdoor gatherings and assess compliance on an ongoing basis. We will continue to do our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and encourage our Park users to do the same.
Seated in historic uptown New Orleans Audubon Park is a favorite spot for recreation, picnics or enjoying a beautiful day. For more than a century, people have enjoyed this urban oasis with allées of ancient live oaks, a tranquil 1.8-mile jogging path, a lagoon, picnic shelters, and playgrounds. Audubon Park is open to the public and also features tennis courts, riding stables, soccer fields, the Whitney Young Pool, Audubon Clubhouse Café and Audubon Golf Club.
While Audubon Park’s green spaces remain open to the public, Audubon Nature Institute is committed to supporting the City and State orders for the public to stay at home and practice physical distancing for the health and safety of our entire community. Audubon security is patrolling the Park, but we strongly encourage guests who witness gatherings or behaviors in the Park that violate those orders to call 311 and report them.
Audubon Park playgrounds and workout equipment areas are now reopened. We strongly encourage hand washing, masks and please maintain proper social distancing. Please note that Audubon is following the CDC recommendation that outdoor areas generally require normal routine cleaning and do not require disinfection.
