Congo Square is where enslaved Africans, enduring the most brutal and oppressive conditions, came together to create music that would change the world. Without a doubt, this is one of the most culturally-significant sites in the United States. The music and culture that originated in...More

I loved visiting this park! Other reviews I saw were mixed, but the park was very clean and nice when I was there. I took my lunch with me and enjoyed the fountain and quiet in the midst of the bustling city. The bridges are...More

We wandered through this beautiful park, taking in the statues, bridges, water displays, peaceful ponds and walkways. We were there during the afternoon and found the park to be peaceful and safe.

This park was beautiful and I learned a lot from just walking. The landscape was a spectacle to see and that statues were a work of art. There was a beautiful fountain in the middle of the park surround by water and a bridge that's...More

This was our first trip to Louis Armstrong park and we were very pleased that it was so nice! Trees and grass, nice stage for the performers, and some GREAT food. I think we lucked out and didn't have crowds because "Cindy" was in town...More

That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi
that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere

tradition is, put simply, just how people go about
their daily lives in this historic part of town. As
one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods

No. Entry is free for just walking around the park. Although I think fees might apply for some events.
