This is a old brick fort this part of the legislative grounds. You can have the opportunity to walk around and walk inside.

This place is always fun to get out and walk around. You can even see the State Capital and take some great shots with your camera. I recommend this place.

We would have really enjoyed this, but access was non-existent because Sesame Street Live was playing downtown, and the traffic and parking was a nightmare. On a different day it would have been much more enjoyable.

Beautiful park which contains Louisiana's copy of the liberty bell along with some indian burial mounds and the old arsenal building. Enjoyed the shade all the live oaks provided on a hot June day.

If you are looking for a little history and a lot of leisure strolling, this is the place for you. Lovely little walkways and benches to rest along the way. If you have younger children, this is a great place to let them run around.
