Audubon Park, an urban park on the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line, began as the fair grounds for the 1884 Cotton Centennial Exposition. Later, the Olmsted firm, which also designed New York’s Central Park, transformed it into a public park. A 1.8-mile jog and bike oval runs between Magazine Street and St. Charles Avenue and a golf course sits inside the oval. An intriguing zoo can be found between Magazine Street and the Mississippi River. On the zoo side, search for the meditation labyrinth near Magazine Street and Exposition Boulevard.
