Take a walk away for Bourbon St

Nice park. The entrance is all lite up at night. Take the walk during the day. The street is all under construction and the area is pretty out of the way at night.

A beautiful park with numerous statues and a stream running through it.Lots of history, music and other here. It used to be Congo square back in the days of slavery.

I visited the park in November with a friend but apart from a few spare people here and there, there was no one in the park. The park is big, with some nice statues honouring the musicians of Jazz, including Louis Armstrong of course, and also there you will find the famous Congo Square but it is so disappointing to...

A beautiful park walking distance from FQ, still showing the scars of Katrina. Although the theatre is still boarded up, 300 year old trees survived. If they could speak, they would tell you of the African slaves that gathered there hundreds of years ago when Congo square was their cultural epicenter. All are invited to participate in the 3-5pm Sunday... More

But when we got there we were pleasantly surprised as the Musicians and Vendors were setting up for Jazz in the Park. Please support this venue and the Magicians. It's very nice. If we lived in New... More

There is often music and some sort of festival at this park so good to check before going. Then there is free music, and food, and a few vendors. People bring blankets and enjoy. It is family friendly.

This was once a beautiful park, but it has not been well taken care of and has become rather depressing. So much potential if they would clean it up.
