  • we enjoyed walking thru the park despite very cold weather. Bet it is very nice in the spring! worth a visit 
  • Pretty park, great history! The front is very relaxing and there are activities held towards the back.

  • 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.
