City Park's miniature golf course opens May 24_lowres



New Orleans City Park is getting a new 36-hole golf course - a miniature golf course. City Putt will have its grand opening May 24 across from the entrance to Storyland and the Botanical Gardens.

Of course, being in the Crescent City and Louisiana and all, it won't be your regular affair of creaky windmills and dodgy tunnel traps:

City Putt is a 36-hole mini golf complex with two courses: the Louisiana Course highlights cultural themes and cities from around the state; the New Orleans Course showcases streets and iconic themes from around the city, with signs detailing the city’s historic sites at each hole.

Greens fees (well, fake plastic greens fees) will be $8 (12 and under, $6), and a $4 upcharge will allow golfers to take on both courses. Mini-golfers will be able to play year-round (closed Mondays).
