I drove by and there are trees down and fences everywhere. I didn't see much of anything. There also wasn't any person anywhere. It looked like an abandoned ghost park with just a few old rides. Everything else was gone.

Heritage square is tired and dated, but your toddler will love it. Great little rides for your 2-4 year old. They will be happy - nice and quiet, no lines.

The amusement park is still open but the new owners, Martin Marietta Materials has demolished the Victorian village, and the Alpine Slide is gone as well.

While Heritage Square is a not what it used to be, the amusement rides are still fun for kids. My two grandkids, ages 7 and 8, love the rides here - especially the GoKarts and Zipline. The Ferris wheel is fun. It's much more doable...More

I used to love this place. We brought our daughter here when she was little to enjoy the shops and restaurants and rides. We also have some wonderful memories of great car shows here. So sad to see it going away.

Well Heritage Square is not what it used to be. The only thing left are carnival rides best suited for kids. The grounds were neat and clean. There is one fast food type lunch stand with several choices at a fair price. They also sell...More

A few rides, a carousel and some cotton candy is all that is left. Even the Alpine Slide is being torn down. Not much to see or do there now. Hopefully, another attraction will eventually take its place, but looks doubtful. So sad.

Trees grow throughout the park, and many of the buildings have awnings or overhangs that provide shade, more so than you're likely to find at other amusement parks. Shaded picnic areas are provided. It's a small park, so... More

Jazz fest? (3 Replies)
It looks like our planned trip to NOLA is during the Jazz Festival. We've been there during the French Quarter festival, but what's the Jazz Festival like? Is it so crowded you can't get around? Do you have to buy tickets for specific performers, or is the one ticket all you have to do? Also, It looks like it's in Heritage Square. What's the best way to search hotels nearby? We're "seniors," and would probably like to be nearby so we can go back to the hotel for breaks.

The Jazz Fest is at the Fairgrounds race track, a couple of miles from the French Quarter. No hotels nearby and even if there were, in/out privileges don't exist unless you buy special $$$ tickets. One ticket gets you into the venue and there are a dozen or so musical stages or tents with music from 11am-7pm daily. All types of music, too. While many people are at the Fairgrounds during the day, restaurants are very crowded at night. Make reservations now if you plan to dine at some of the...More

For children ages 6-10, which would you recommend: Heritage Square or Lakeside? Both look like they would provide hours of fun, just looking for advice from anyone who's been there. Thank you very much!

My grandkids love to go to Heritage Square, but I don't know that they've been to Lakeside, so I don't have the best comparison.

Pizzeria Bianco and Rose & Crown are part of Heritage Square. PB gets great reviews, but generally has long, long lines to get in. My wife and I had lunch at Rose & Crown a few years ago before a Diamondback game. It is mainly pub food. No patio, but I seem to recall a front porch. Have not been in the area for a while, but I think there are other restaurants in that area. At 1st and Adams is Hanny's, which used to be a men's clothing store and is now a restaurant. We had lunch there a few...More
