Gardens in NOLA

New Orleans homes for sale are surrounded by natural beauty that will inspire you. When you are relaxing after a full day of New Orleans open houses, be sure to take some time to enjoy the many green spaces that The Big Easy has in store.

Our Realtors® know there are plenty of wonderful reasons to make New Orleans your next home: The history, unbeatable music and dining scene, and a lifestyle you simply can't find anywhere else. But you don't have to head out to the Bayou to enjoy Louisiana nature: It's right in your backyard.

New Orleans goes one step beyond the usual municipal park concept with its focus on gardens. Some of them are historic, playing a role in the unfolding story of the city, while others are botanical gardens that encourage research, conservation, or hands-on skill development.
