Pretty park, great history! The front is very relaxing and there are activities held towards the back.

I visited Louis Armstrong Park primarily because I wanted to see Congo Square, the historical location where enslaved Africans harkened to their origins weekly in celebration of their heritage during the 17th century. Upon my arrival, I heard a drum circle reverberating and wished I had arrived earlier than 4:30pm on a Sunday afternoon. I enjoyed the various sculptures of... More

So glad we went to this park, it is full of history and the sculptures are excellent, telling the story of how, during the slave period, they visited the park where they were able to sing and dance. We were not on an organised tour but felt we were able to gain enough information on our own. Lovely water feature... More

There are free concerts here. They have a variety of musicians, and offer resonable drinks while you sat around to listen.

We caught the bus to nearby and walked through the park. Beautiful park, lovely water features, statues. Very peaceful and relaxing surroundings. Beautiful tribute to a legend in music and one of a kind. Must visit if in New Orleans.

This was probably a nice park in it's day but like so much of this area it has become rundown. Nice bridge within and a fountain for those Kodak moments, plus a Louis Armstrong statue as well as some other sculptures, but be wary of gang types and thugs that frequent there, especially as the day is closing.

We visited in January so it was cold, but the sun was shining. The park is very maintained and absolutely clean. Lots of photograph opportunities. We were also lucky that a guy was playing a guitar whilst sitting on one of the benches. All in all a nice way to spend an hour on a sunny day.

Very small park, not much to do around probably just to take the picture with the Armstrong sign better to do it at night.

Neighbourhood Profile
That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered to be the very best of New Orleans culture and 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 and among the nation’s first established residential areas for free people of color, Tremé’s significant heritage and contribution cannot be understated. This is especially the case when considering some of Tremé’s most famous residents, most notably jazz great Louis Armstrong. For full flavored food, funky and jazzed up music, and vibrant street life presented with homegrown pride, you can’t beat a visit to Tremé.
