They host a lot of events here and feature live bands and lots of food (it's New Orleans, what'd you expect?) lots of fun and captures what a jazz festival should look like.

My husband and I got a chance to explore the park in September. It was beautiful. I kept picturing bridal photos on the bridges and along the water (our wedding was a month after so I was in the last month of planning lol). Lots of interesting statues and sculptures. It's definitely worth a walk through.

Didn't see much of the park because it was full of folk enjoying the music, food and drink of the Treme Creole Gumbo Festival but I did see most the statues and couldn't leave without a photo opp with the great satchmo statue and a Mardi Gras Indian 😊 Really enjoyed the festival even though the queues for the gumbo...

I very much enjoyed the landscaping, and we all enjoyed climbing a low-hanging limb of a great old live oak. A shame the municipal hall was closed and boarded up, however.

They are some nice statutes and water features. I was a bit nervous taking my family here as the reviews had suggested some security concerns but my wife was keen to go. I found the park very safe and no such issues. Nice to walk around.

The bronze sculptures and historical placards will enlighten you. A cultural awakening for anyone who appreciates music. An awesome tribute to the musicians past and present.

This park is just a couple of blocks away from Bourbon Street. It has quite a few statues some of which dedicated to various musicians including Louis Armstrong it is named after. I don't think it would be safe walking there in the evening or at night, but during the day it is definitely worth a visit.

very nice historical point of interest. Many of the buildings were closed (Sunday) but the history and influence this area has served made it a worthwhile trip. Hop-On-Hop-Off made this a great experience including a stop to St. Louis Cemetary.

in 15 years of visiting New Orleans, this was the first time we have visited Armstrong Park. In the past we have been cautioned about avoiding the park, especially after dusk. We went as I noticed that they were having a Creole Gumbo Festival with Local Arts. I am so glad we did. The park is beautiful. It has groomed... More
