  • Climb the Rusty Rainbow to Crescent Park! We walked around here after lunch at Pizza Delicious, and I really liked the area. The only thing we were missing was our pup!  more »

  • I love the idea of connecting the whole city with a path by the water. The only issue really is the lack of shade and lack of shade trees. The whole pathway is under direct sunlight from dawn til dusk, so its radiating heat from above and below. If they planned to plant shade trees this would be one of the nicest city pathways, or use it in the winter
  • Great place for a morning run. Peaceful scenery and walking distance to the French Market. Excellent views of the city and the Mississippi River.
  • What a surprise, what a gem in walking distance to the French Quarter. Stunning views of New Orleans' skyline, the Mississippi, The steamboat Natchez, and plenty of plants and history. Refresh after a long night with a brisk walk or even a run. If you didn't overindulge you might just get some pastry and enjoy one of the porch swings. Even better: bring a pair of binoculars and watch the banks of the Mississippi getting crowded and anthill like when Cafe du Monde slings out beignets to hungry tourists. I highly recommend walking through Marigny and into the Bywater on Burgundy or Dauphine to explore New Orleans a little more.
  • Great little park to reflect on your thoughts as the ships pass you by on the Mississippi river. Can not wait to see the park in spring time because of all of the plants.
  • Beautiful hidden park within New Orleans. Very short drive or bus ride from downtown to the park. Beautiful views of the Mississippi River with landscapes and flowers everywhere. Pier that you can use for events or just sit and get some peace and quiet. Take your camera!!
