You can take the St. Charles Streetcar to the zoo. It's a nice place to take children and they have a MacDonalds as well as other places to stop for lunch.

This zoo has some very rare animals, like an albino alligator, a komodo dragon, and orangutans. Its beautiful natural settings allow the animals to live in their own environment. You can tell they really care about the animals.
The zoo has a regional section, featuring animals of the bayou. This is a nice touch.

There's a three-mile path that wraps around the park with designated space for leisure walkers, joggers, bikers, and roller-bladers. It's a favorite place to take the pooch for a stroll. There's also paths for horseback riding (stables are located near the Zoo) and a few ponds teeming with turtles and ducks with benches alongside. Encircled by the path, is a brand new golf course open to the public for a fee.
Have a romantic picnic on the grass. Read a book on one of the many benches or in a gazebo. Let the kids play in the playground. Have a barbecue. No matter what you do, try to take a little time in Audubon Park. It's a gem and a great place to unwind when your wallet (or your hangover) needs a break.
NOTE: While very safe during the day, I would NOT use the park after dark.

It's very easy to get to on the St. Charles trolley. From the trolley, you can choose to walk to the mile and a half to the entrance or ride the shuttle that arrives approximately every 15 minutes.

It's a relaxing break from upbeat Bourbon Street that will give the entire family some quality time together. Don't forget to bring a backpack to store snacks and water--you'll like having them while visiting the grounds.

Parking can be hard to find, but not impossible. Don't forget about the shuttle from the St.Charles street car.
