Had trouble entering from perimeter as most gates other than main one are locked. No events going on while we were there and all of the buildings looked abandoned or locked up. Probably a different beast if a festival is going on or music is being played as other reviews note. Otherwise just a park with footpaths and an ambling... More

A beautiful park for a stroll on a nice day. It often hosts music festivals and other city events. A home that Louis Armstrong actually lived in is on the park grounds. Not sure if it's open to the public.

I have always wanted to go into the but for whatever I never did until this trip. I'm glad I waited. Our tour guide was a wealth of knowledge. It is definitely something that I would do again. I would recommend going in for the first time as part of a tour.

This is a great park on the edge of the French Quarter. It's a fun place to wander to get away from the crowds, but on Thursday evenings it comes alive with a free jazz concert with multiple groups performing on stage. There are craft booths and food trucks with lots of local foods. Sit on the grass and enjoy... More

An easy walk from the French quarter. Once you cross the busy N Rampart street, you arrive at the arch giving way to the oasis of relative calm. Lots of greenery, water and monuments. Makes for a nice stroll or jog. You could exit from the other side into the Treme neighborhood.

A lively place--fun event daily, from farmers market to gumbo festival. Bandstand with local musicians, plus the Mahalia Jackson Opera House lies within the park. It's home to the New Orleans Opera and venue for other fascinating performances.

We came across this park on one of our morning walks. Thankfully it was early morning, it was getting real hot. This park made me smile, being a jazz fan it was wonderful to see the artistry of the sculptures and the design of the park.

Thank Shannon D

Neighborhood Profile
That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered to be the very best of New Orleans culture and tradition is, put simply, just how people go about their daily lives in this historic part of town. As one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods and among the nation’s first established residential areas for free people of color, Tremé’s significant heritage and contribution cannot be understated. This is especially the case when considering some of Tremé’s most famous residents, most notably jazz great Louis Armstrong. For full flavored food, funky and jazzed up music, and vibrant street life presented with homegrown pride, you can’t beat a visit to Tremé.
