There were a few neat sculptures but what really draws the eye are the elaborate bridges. Not the best park for an afternoon stroll, but I bet it is great for jazz concerts.

This is one of the best city parks I have ever seen. In the midst of the city, this peaceful place is just right for taking a break from the noise, and taking a relaxing stroll around the park. The water is refreshing, and the entire place was clean and neat.

This is just a lovely park! It is large and has many different areas and things to see. There are fountains, sculpture, bridges, and the day we visited, a Jazz and Crab Fest. Also home of the Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts. A beautiful place to take a picnic lunch or a book and escape the busyness of... More

We walked to the park from the French Quarter. We looked into the park from the gate, but saw some seedy looking characters, so turned around, and went back.

We took the street car there on a Wednesday, it was practically deserted. We went back Thursday at 4 for FREE Jazz, food and craft vendors and a lively crowd. Fabulous!

Neighbourhood Profile
That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered to be the very best of New Orleans culture and tradition is, put simply, just how people go about their daily lives in this historic part of town. As one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods and among the nation’s first established residential areas for free people of color, Tremé’s significant heritage and contribution cannot be understated. This is especially the case when considering some of Tremé’s most famous residents, most notably jazz great Louis Armstrong. For full flavored food, funky and jazzed up music, and vibrant street life presented with homegrown pride, you can’t beat a visit to Tremé.
