  • This park was once very pretty and vibrant I am sure. When we were there on a Friday afternoon it was not busy at all, although there were a few homeless residents around. We were there with a tour gu...  more »

  • Louis Armstrong Park is just the place to and have an awesome family picnic at! Plenty of sculptures to enjoy right on the waters edge... Love the artistic use of the water ways as they cut through the park! Located right outside the french quarter to take a bike/hike over to it!
  • I live near the park and visit often. It is definitely open as a park but the gates are locked sometime after dark; I think around 10pm. Generally it is open. It's not usually crowded, and it's nice to sit on the benches and relax. On Sunday afternoons, there is usually drumming in Congo Square. Jazz in the Park on Thursdays evenings in Spring. Congo Square is an important historical area if you're a history buff, do look it up. The park as a whole doesn't have great upkeep, some of the fountains are broken, the old Theatre is abandoned, as are the old WWOZ offices in the house area on the downtown side of the park. It's not a pristine park but it's a nice stroll. There are cafes (Arrow, Mr. Gregory's) and quite a few bars just across the street, and now there's the Rampart Streetcar that runs along one side of the park. Good place to get a little breathing space and fresh air away from the Quarter.
  • Beautiful Park in spite of a few homeless people there. They kept it very nice and we saw a few wedding parties there. Highly recommend for that picture place or picnic. So pretty and well kept.
  • Was once a very beautiful park. Great sculptures inside the main entrance. Nice water features. Close to public transit and the French Quarter.
  • Beautiful, haunting, ethereal tragic. Representation of roots of black american history. Persons who were forefathers and the foundations of some of America's finest music!
