It's peaceful to walk around Besthoff Sculpture Garden with a companion and comment on the interesting modern sculptures. There are a few pleasing traditional sculptures near the entrance but most of the statues are unusual, such as a giant safety pin. It's nice that you can enter for free, so if you need to go for a walk why not go here where you can surround yourself with art? The vegetation isn't super lush but is pleasant.
After, check out some wonderful places in City Park: Storyland, Carousel Gardens, and the New Orleans Botanical Garden (one $4 ticket allows entry to all three).

Entry to the garden is free. At different times of day, some gates are locked but keep looking and you should find an open one (if you see people walking around inside).
