  • Great music, food and shopping. Loving New Orleans for the birthday month! This is an excellent park with a cool museum. 
  • This venue hosts free jazz concerts, which are excellent. It really adds to the ambiance of New Orleans. However, we returned to this park in search of the life-size statue of the great jazz musician ...  more »
  • We enjoyed the last free jazz concert of the season. We got there early and found a shady bench to park ourselves. Eventually the food and drink vendors showed up so we had refreshments. Several bands...  more »

  • This place is very historic. We attended jazz fest here. This location is not only a beautiful park, but it is also the best place in the city for festivals of this nature... Appropriately named after one of the greatest jazz musicians all times. Also, the slaves would gather here to dance in African rituals. You can kinda still feel as if their spirits still feel like this place is "home".
  • designed by an idiot but a nice escape from the quarter. not great for women after dark.
  • A special spot in New Orleans. Beauty and tranquility.
  • Nice looking park cool to see but a long stay in park will run into homeless & crack heads. No bathroom and if you go to back of park you run into places people pee on around building or worse. Go to park pee odor and people taking dump not what I had in mind.
  • Beautiful, quiet place to do absolutely nothing!! No restrooms, uncomfortable seating, water doesn't work, crew is very unhelpful.
