If you're looking for an afternoon away from the French Quarter, hop on a streetcar to this beautiful Uptown park, where you can stroll for hours through the semitropical public gardens of a former sugar plantation shaded by oak and magnolia trees. The zoo, across from the park, is one of the city's hidden treasures, with all of the installations (Mayan-themed jaguar display, expansive African savanna section) nestled in an ancient, moss-draped oak forest. Not surprisingly, the best part of the zoo is the Louisiana wetlands exhibit, for its re-creation and deft joining of Louisiana's native wildlife (alligators, black bears, otters, and raccoons) with the bayou traditions of human swamp folk, such as trapping and hunting.—Pableaux Johnson
