Lakeview

Small town comfort, New Orleans ease

The Lakeview neighborhood of New Orleans, located between City Park Ave, and the south edge of Lake Pontchartrain, has so much to offer its residents. The neighborhoods of Lakeshore and Lake Terrace can be found just outside Lakeview but has a lot of the same neighborhood feel. Lakeview was first developed after WWII and consisted of many bungalows type homes built at that time, but today, after Hurricane Katrina destroyed many homes, new construction homes have popped up throughout the neighborhood.
Lakeview is home to the City Park, the 6th largest public park in the United States.
