Jackson square

Peaceful little park and a great place to take pictures. Nice place to take a break under the shaded trees.

Loved the little shops, enjoying Cafe Au Laits & beignets, etc. Had a muflatta in Franks - the best olive salad. Bought some to take home

Took my instrument to Jackson Square and did not take long to meet enough people to get a small band together and go busking! Tip, take a hat, there is little in the way of shade and it can get like an oven in the square!

The historic park was a lovely walk and we relaxed on the lawn under a big shady moss covered oak to rest and enjoy the tunes from local musicians and singers! Loved all the colorful local artists displaying they beautiful paintings and crafts! Great food and beverage choices all within easy reach!

In the heart of the French Quarter is this very nice park with landscaping and benches. It's surrounded by street performers (probably more on the weekends than when we were there on a Friday) and artists selling their artwork. Café DuMonde is across the street. Parking is a problem - try the nearby parking garages.

Jackson Square and the St. Louis Cathedral is the iconic heart of NOLA. It is a wonderfully picturesque place, always beautiful and peaceful. You simply cannot visit NOLA without a visit to the square.

Do yourself a favor and get some type of tour through this area. They will tell you about he history of this park and the surrounding buildings. If you love art you will love all the surrounding vendors and cafe du monde is across the street.

Jackson Square is more of a small park than an attraction, but it is beautiful and well worth the visit. It also backs up to the entrance of the St. Louis Church which is magnificent.

Pleasant enough little oasis of green in middle of French Quarter. The statue of Jackson is a grand Memorial. Benches were soon occupied by people "resting" in the afternoon, and definitely wouldn't pass through here after dark, although on reflection, I think the gates are locked at night, which speaks volumes for the "culture" of the area.
