  • Very serene little park, a great place to get away and have quiet time during the day. I walk in this park every morning, it's an awesome way to start my day. It is also a good place to walk your dog, go for a jog, have a picnic or bring the kids to play.
  • Very cool views of the city. It's well maintained and it has some art pieces along the trail. I went there on a Tuesday (late morning/early afternoon) and it was pretty empty, which was nice.
  • I've spent many hours here. Whether it be just thinking, hanging out and drawing, watching cruise ships leave, walking the dog with my cousin, New Years Eve celebration, or a weed If reception. Each time is always memorable.
  • Narrow strip of a park with an urban feel right along the Mississippi River. Great views of the river and downtown.
  • Wonderful trail and River Walk. Places to sit and relax. Interesting art pieces along the way. Beautiful views of the city.

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.
