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

Music Gumbo - Walking Tour History of New Orleans' jazz and popular music 2PM

Music Gumbo - Walking Tour History of New Orleans' jazz and popular music 2PM

star-4.5
A two-hour guided walking tour through the French Quarter, across Rampart Street and into Louis Armstrong Jazz Park to a place called Congo Square where American music was born. With every story your music tour guide will play a snippet of music related to the story, mostly original recordings. The Music Gumbo tour tells a surprising 300-year history of New Orleans’ birthing of jazz, nurturing of rhythm ‘n’ blues and the hits from America first rock ‘n’ roll recording studio. The music that made that Gumbo reaches back a century and a half earlier to 1750s French colonists granting slaves freedom on Sundays. 18th, 19th and 20th – opera, gospel and songs sung by bawdy sailors in saloons near the Mississippi River docks. The most amazing story is that it all happened in the French Quarter and surrounding neighborhoods.
