Parkview Terrace - New Orleans City Park

Parkview Terrace


Located on the top floor of the Casino Building (also known as the Timken Center), Parkview Terrace truly lives up to its name: floor-to-ceiling windows and arched French doors overlooking a wrap-around balcony offer guests picture-perfect views of Bayou Metairie, Popp Bandstand, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, and the surrounding park. The Spanish Mission-style building was built in 1913, and has many unique features, including an on-site kitchen, a private entryway, hardwood flooring and a terracotta tile roof. Parkview Terrace is ideal for receptions, dinners, meetings and seminars.

Bandstand

With 12 granite columns and topped with a bronze dome, Popp Bandstand was named for is benefactor, John F. Popp, and is a replica of the Temple of Love in Versailles. In 1916, Popp made a donation to the park to build the Popp Bandstand (located between the Peristyle and Morning Call), which was designed by architect Emile Weil. It was created as a bandstand for live performances but when musicians were not playing, families would gather there to watch the “vitascope”, one of the first types of motion picture projectors.
