School’s IN session in Storyland!

Little Red School House is back in City Park’s Storyland

With a huge thanks to sponsor Entergy New Orleans, New Orleans City Park is thrilled to announce the Little Red School House is now back in Storyland. The new school house replaces a smaller version that was removed from Storyland a few years ago.

Click here to check out a construction photo and to see what the earlier version of the Little Red School House looked like.


Situated in Storyland between the Jack and Jill slide and the Old King Cole display, the new school house boasts more space for more kids to play school, a teacher’s desk with two smaller student desks, a chalk board for kids to scribble with chalk, and a school-bell to ring. There is also a dedicated space with a picnic table just outside of the school house’s front door. The space is also air conditioned.


The Little Red School House is available to rent for birthday parties. To get more information on Birthday Parties at City Park, please contact Teresa at (504) 483-9458 or or visit this link.
