  • This is one of the best views in the city. You have a 360° view of Jackson Square, the St. Louis Cathedral, Cafe Du Monde and the Mississippi River. Great place to snap some selfies and make your friends jealous!
  • Cool place next to the moon walk and is a little spooky swear I saw. A ghost would recommend this park
  • Cool place. just dont talk to street panhandlers they get loud and bothersome best to say no thanks and keep moving

  • Well maintained park. Enjoyed my visit!

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.
