Louis Armstrong Park Tours

star-4.5
751 Reviews
Louis Armstrong Park
Located on the outlying border of the famous French Quarter, the Louis Armstrong Park is a lovely 32 acre haven, full of beautiful grassy knolls, lagoons, and cultural auditoriums and structures that are everything jazz.

In the southern corner of the park is the historic Congo Square, a cobblestone laden open space that was used in the 17th century as a gathering point, where African-American slaves came to socialize and make music, one of the earliest signs of African influence in jazz.

Behind the square lay a plethora of buildings such as the Mahalia Jackson Center for the Performing Arts, Jazz National Historical Park, and the recently renovated Perseverance Hall, where there is now a jazz exhibit and a line of scheduled performances throughout the year. All these places and more are a testament to Louisiana’s long and prospering music tradition in the face of oppression and hard times.

Practical Info

Since the park is located so close to the French Quarter, it is also a convenient walk from the famous Bourbon Street and Jackson Square. It is also a short walking distance to accommodations sprawling all around the neighborhood. If you are coming in from a different part of New Orleans, you can take the northeast bound route 10 that passes just a few blocks from the park.
Address: 835 N. Rampart St, New Orleans 70116, USA
