It's Renovation Week, and that doesn't just apply to homes and buildings that have been fixed up. New Orleans' parks have also gone through big transformations over the years. City Park, for example, has added multiple attractions to its expansive grounds; Armstrong Park, on the other hand, suffered years of neglect and recently returned to glory. Here, a round-up of three of New Orleans' biggest parks in the past and present.

The fountain today. In recent years, the fountain underwent a massive restoration, and Waggonner and Ball architects built a modern reception hall to replace one that had been destroyed in Katrina.
