Address
Neighborhood: Tremé
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.

    Beautiful park
    I loved walking around here, even though it was cloudy and rainy. Perhaps that's why it was empty & quiet but we still enjoyed it. We hope to visit on a sunny day next time!

    Beautiful park steeped in history
    Beautiful park we visited as part of a walking tour. Our guide touched on the vast history relevant to the area, but I’m sure a deeper dive would make a visit even more interesting. Also, lots of great old huge trees if that is your thing.

    A Memorial not to be missed.
    Simply a park that begs any memory of the great man. The Park hosts music across the year and the gateway is astounding. The theatre Mahalia Jackson is a venue that remembers another great artist and has regular productions.

    A memorial to jazz music
    Such a beautiful park to take a stroll. Though the park is dedicated to Louis Armstrong and jazz music it is also steeped in Voodoo history and the starting point for a number of voodoo and ghost tours. Catch it at sun down and see them light the sign up.

beautiful little park. I don't know what was going on with the other reviewers, or when they went, but the park was immaculate when I visited - there were park workers actually working on the grounds when I was there - and it felt quite safe. It was so peaceful I actually visited twice, the first time to wander around and see Congo Square and the sculptures, the second time just to enjoy the peace and quiet. Whoever is responsible for turning historic Congo Square into this lovely park dedicated to some of the great 20th century artists who turned those historic drumbeats and dance into jazz, hit it out of the park

Armstrong Park is only a ten minute walk from Jackson Square. It's not a big park, but there are several statues of famous musicians, a duck pond, and the historic Congo Square. It's a clean, pleasant green space in the middle of the city.

This park has several fountains & older buildings. It celebrates Louis Armstrong & others who participated in the Blues and Jazz of our country including Louis Armstrong. Good place to get a little bit of a walk in & some American music culture

Louis Armstrong Park is a very good public park not too far from the French Quarter; you can walk to it. It's a great place for families, for walking or just sitting and enjoying the sunshine. Obviously there's a statue of Louis Armstrong but there are also staues of Charles "Buddy" Boulden and "Big Chief Tootie" Montana. Unfortunately, there is a noticeable lack of information boards so you may need to read a guide book before you go. Other sights to see are the Aqueduct Fountain (which was not working the day we were there) and the historic Congo Square where, on Sundays in the 17th and 18th centuries, slaves gathered to sing and dance to their own brand of music.

This is a lovely park, just off the beaten path of Bourbon Street. There are several statues dedicated to the history of New Orleans as well as jazz, and some very large Oak trees. Great place to relax for an hour or two.

Louis Armstrong had beef with New Orleans. His home was in Queens, NY. But now everywhere you go, his name is all over New Orleans. Armstrong park is a great green space with gorgeous old oak trees that tower and wind throughout the grounds. Beautiful sculptures throughout. Congo square is here, where the enslaved used to gather, dance, drum, and worship. They still have a drum circle on Sundays! Voodoo/vodou tours and scavenger hunts often start here.

It’s a wonderful place to celebrate, learn, stroll, reflect.

Sad to see. Huge potential squandered. Water features not working, all buildings damaged and crumbling. Obviously been neglected for a long while. Vagrants and drug bags. The water brown and smelling. Talked to someone working on the firehouse, and he said the city has been arguing over repairs since Katrina!

This park is far from the main hustle and bustle of central french district. It's nice to have a walk around the park and see the various sculptures. Information boards were few and far between so I'd recommend having a read of the cultural significance of this park online.

What is appropriate dedication to the great son of New Orleans! We really enjoyed the beautiful landscape, bridges, statues, and art deco structures. The statue of Louis Armstrongs and the bust of Sidney Bechet really stood out.
Hopefully, the municipal building, which is deserted will be resurrected in some form someday. It is a beautiful structure with a lot of potential.

This is a nice park, but seems rather neglected. It could be a serious showcase for the city, but ends up being slightly worth a side trip if you're in the neighborhood. That can be pretty easy to pull off if you're in the French Quarter.
