Wanted to enjoy this park with 2 dogs. Nice location, but did not care for the residents. Would not return, unless for a concert.

Great location near the Frenchman St clubs and restaurants. Playground for the kids. Nice trees. Would be a lot nicer if there weren't homeless sleeping on the park benches. Doesn't feel quite safe.

small park surrounded by vintage homes but it wasn't all we were lead to believe it was and basically a waste of time for us.

Found this little park while taking a walk on Frenchmen street. Nice enough park and would be great to hang out in. However, there were a lot of drifters in the park that day and several of them were acting "off"... Definitely wouldn't want to...More

Washington Square Park was small but well-suited for its purpose - a local park with enough play equipment, enough open space and enough seats and shade. Locked at night of course.

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely
residential. Of course, folks around here love to go
out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere
in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the
festivities, well then so much the better! Home to
some of the most revered live music venues in New
Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining
