The grounds were almost lost to Katrina’s floodwaters, but today the site has made almost a complete turnaround. Local and international flora is exhibited, and there are stirring examples of Works Progress Administration (WPA) workmanship and art-deco design in the form of pavilions and function halls such as the Pavilion of Two Sisters and Lath House. In the northwest corner, the Train Garden replicates the city in 1:22 scale miniature size, cut through with 1300ft of rail.
