  • Interesting park, and actually revitalized complexion public space along the river. Remember only that absolutely there shadow so on a hot day to burn you as in the Sahara desert.

  • Hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter, the river walk is so worth to find. You have to climb the good old rusty rainbow to enjoy the trail and the view of the river. Beautifully...  read more »

  • This is a beautiful fairly new park offering fantastic walkways and views of the Mississippi. There are places to picnic, a dog run, tasteful landscaping, a gentle breeze. At the piety bridge there's pizza delicious for the best pizza in Nola.
  • 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!!
  • The park itself is lovely and handicap accessible. We found the covered area concrete a bit too dirty (even for NOLA standards) to do yoga on but enjoyed our visit.
  • Crescent Park is a beautiful addition to New Orleans's waterfront parks, extending access to the Mississippi River from the Marigny to the Bywater neighborhoods. The park is appealing and contemporary in its minimalistic industrial design and furnishings. The park offers an uninterrupted promenade parallel to the river equipped with seating, landscaping and plenty of open space to host plenty of outdoor activities. I only hope that something is being done about the bulkhead, which seems to be eroding and falling off even at the most recently completed part of the park. The park could also use more landscaping and trees as there aren't many shaded areas.
  • I love this park. It's a great place to walk, ride a bike, rollerblade or just think. Great views of the Mississippi River.
