Mid City / City Park Real Estate
Mid-City was originally called “back of town” until the technology was developed to improve drainage and allow development of the land. Now, it’s home to some of the best casual, local dining (think Parkway Tavern, Liuzza’s by the Track and other beloved local eateries) and a diverse set of residents.
Development has continued to grow in Mid-City with the addition of the American Can Company, the improved streetcar line and the Mid City market, anchored by a grocery store and filled with restaurants and shops.

The neighborhood blends into the City Park area, which is home to Delgado Community College, the New Orleans Museum of Art, Bayou St. John and the stunningly beautiful 1,300 acre City Park. City Park offers a botanical garden, sculpture garden, public tennis courts, playgrounds, a dog park, an amusement park and a golf course.
Bayou St. John offers kayaking rentals while City Park has canoe and paddle boat rentals. Living around the bayou and park provides a great number of recreational activities right in your own neighborhood.
Homes around the park generally date from the early 1900s, with some newer development sprinkled throughout. Until you’ve driven through the park and along Bayou St. John in the early morning, you won’t realize how beautiful the scenery in this part of town really is.
Architecture abounds in this area, with shotguns, cottages, townhouse, condos and more to choose from.
