We visited this park to see the Lois Armstrong Memorial, but there is not a lot of this to see. There was an interesting memorial to the slaves of New Orleans who used to gather here if they ever had free time to get whatever respite and support by dancing here to their own style of music.

New Orleans is nothing but sensory overload. That's why we always try to take a break in a local park to relax for a few minutes. This park has a lovely garden feel, with little bodies of water you can take a load off. We sat in the grass in the late afternoon and just let ourselves unwind. It was... More

Was at an African Music and Dance festival here and was surprised at the quality of the offerings of vendors, professionally run entertainment on stage and excellent food choices. Of course the port-o-sans got funky after a while but the sculptures, bridges, pond, fountains, and beautiful flowers and trees made this a lovely respite in an urban setting. Great for... More

This is a really cool park... lots of bridges and walkways over water and fountains. Just very nice to stroll around, and super close to the French Quarter! A good spot to escape the craziness for a bit!

Scenic location for Rhythm Fest. Beware the caterpillars falling from the oak trees. Fabulous performers, ample portable potties. Great food.

It's easy enough to see this park regardless of my opinion, but I'd still suggest saving your time. Though it does boast some nice big trees, the park is much smaller than it looks, had only a few statues to see, and had a few too many homeless sleeping there for my comfort. The water in the pond is disgustingly... More

A great place to stroll and enjoy a little quiet time in the hustle and bustle of The Big Easy. Kids can run around, but there is no playground equiptment

Pretty place to spend a quick amount of time when in the area. Loved the water and the bridges. With the walk down the street to get to it!

Great park with gorgeous trees and sculptures. It's a nice break from the crazy crowds of the quarter. It's also historically significant to the history of the city and the development of jazz.

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.
