    Great hidden gem. This park came from the ashes of the Phoenix. Former wharfs used to sit here, now the area has been transformed into an oasis of serenity. Climb the 96 or so stairs, I counted, to gain access to a little piece of earthly heaven in the form of breathtaking views of the city. Seems to be something straight from a postcard. Way to go CITY OF NOLA, job well done. This park in the heart of the Marigny serves its purpose of promoting a day time get away.

    Very beautiful, well kept, paved walking trail. There's a fenced dog run. Plenty of benches to rest your weary legs. Blooming, exotic flowers near the bridge over the tracks. Amazing view of New Orleans cityscape. I highly suggest this place to go take photos.

Where to stay in New Orleans

Though you can walk to most tourist attractions in New Orleans from a hotel in the central business district, remember that many other parts of town feature less expensive and equally comfortable accommodations. Smaller hotels and private guesthouses in quiet residential neighborhoods offer not only good local food and spacious rooms, but can also allow you to explore the city's culture away from overwhelming tourist crowds. To reduce your carbon footprint during your stay, consider one of French Quarter's many green or eco-friendly hotels.
