Very nice small park, a nice place to sit and relax while walking around the French Quarter. While we were there, an area grade school came to the park to have their lunch, it was a blast to sit and watch the kids play.

If you are there earlier, it is less crowded and much easier to get better photos. Also, the sun is shining on the cathedral for better photography.

Getting ready for Christmas, the decorations are going up and should look fabulous. Central to the French quarter will draw tons of people the closer to Christmas comes. Very historical place to feel the heart of NOLA.

So much fun to explore shops, galleries, and restaurants, see the work on display of many artists and craftspeople, catch musicians and other street performers, have your palm read. Great photo opportunities. One of NOLA's historic stops. It's a happy place.

What a great lace in the heart of the French Quarter. It is the prettiest park in New Orleans to me.

Very nice square and public space. Unlike Bourbon Street, it is wide, open and clean. The St Louis Cathedral is at one end and the statue of Jackson and the Louisiana Purchase monument in the middle. Lots of shops and tourists all around.

The square is located central to just about everything. The cathedral, the market and the river are right there. We used it to stop and sit to rest off and on during our sightseeing.

A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

The river boat cruises are about 10 min walk to Jackson Square. The GOP on bus is in the same area of cruises depending on service you use. March the weather should be pretty nice
