  • Well, this park has seen better days, but it's still beautiful. Lots of trash, homeless people and just needed maintenance, but still historic and iconic  more »

  • Though the park has great potential, it is not well kept and is uninviting. The sculptures give it a nice touch and meaning. To a jazz fan like me, a picture at the statue of Louis Armstrong is a must. But my wife and I only spent about 15 minutes here. The experience could be far better if the park was in better shape.
  • A great park, that includes Congo Square (which strikes me as being more round than square) and the empty since Katrina and almost certainly haunted by now (the ghosts can easily get in through all the broken windows) Municipal Auditorium (which I’d love to peek inside), but they kick everyone out, lock the gates, and close the park down at 7PM, even in the summer, when it’s still daytime, which is why I can’t give it five stars. In all fairness, they do the same at Lafayette Park in the French Quarter, which brings up the unpleasant issue of homelessness in a land where we could do so much better (including fixing up the auditorium and putting it to good use.)
