Hubby and I took a stroll around the park, the sculptures which interested me to make the trip to the park, were mostly just inside the gate, the rest of the stroll wasn't worth it, especially in the 90+ weather (not the park's fault).
Great park in the middle of NOLA, but it is under loved. Not many people the day we went. There is a huge concert hall that has been abandoned that I would have loved to see inside, also the cafe buildings were all closed and...More
The park is nice and it is lovely to have some grass so close to the French Quarter, however it seems almost like it is abandoned. Not too many people walking around, the water features not working, I was not impressed but it has a...More
We were staying at the Best Western Plus directly across the street so it was simple to nip over and have a strol .
In general the park is in good shape with a few sculptures with plaques and info boards.

New Orleans should be ashamed of the condition of the park. Only one fountain worked. The bridges where rotted and pieces were missing. The statues were great! Once upon a time this would be a must see, now no.
Stayed a block away from this beautiful park dedicated to all the Jazz greats. Fountains and statues guided me from Treme to the French Quarter. Some of the building still show the awesome hurricane damage. There are guided tours as well.
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.
