Beautiful memorials and lots of history; go with a guide. Locals spot, but questionable safety. Shade and benches.

As part of a walking tour we learned the history of the park- which is old and storied. There is a beautiful stone courtyard surrounded by beautiful trees and benches. Several statues and art installations. Worth a visit

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.

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

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