The reason we went to this park was because of the fried chicken festival. The park is pretty large but the festival was full of people. The park seemed pretty nice, great views and sculptures. We really enjoyed the fried chicken at the festival.

Besides a nice view onto the Mississippi river, you can have a good look at the Natchez steamboat before or after your tour. Pay attention to the people in the open-air pavilion... how they bide their time and enjoy the moment. You should try it...More

A beautiful park like all the others in New Orleans. Small for a quick stroll. You'll find the ferry boat here which you can board for a tour. I enjoyed the cultural tunes it was playing upon its arrival.

The Riverfront is not one of the most beautiful per say when it comes to waterfront areas. You see some joggers there in the morning and a few people strolling down the walk. Unfortunately, it seems to also attract a number of homeless.

After visiting Jackson Square, cross the street and marvel at the mighty Mississippi. A good spot to watch the ships navigate the big bend. Also you can see and ride the paddle wheeler if you wish.Nice clean restrooms under the berm by the street

A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs

around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

It'll be packed and it's a sketchy area . Safer on the riverfront in front of Jackson Square. That will still be packed. Just don't bring wallets or purses. Keep your cards an ID in front pockets. Algiers is a nice place and... More
