A well keep park central to the French Quarter, also known as the Vieux Carré. Many activities surround the Square including nearby Cafe du Monde, the cathedral and a number of artists with local inspired art and jazz musicians performing daily.

Historic Jackson Square is a beautiful area to walk around. The park, basilica, historic buildings, etc. really give a person the flavor of New Orleans. I'd recommend a walking tour to delve into some of the history of the area.

Lots of entertainment in this area. The park was clean, even in a city where the homeless are quite prevalent in the parks. It closes at dusk so enjoy during the day!

Definitely one of the top parks to visit in New Orleans. It is close to many other interesting sites and within close walking distance to the French Quarter and the Café du Monde.

Street vendors line the area both day and night! Great pictures of the church and the courtyard. Easy access from several roads

The actual park is small, but nice. Local artists come here and actually hang their artwork on the fence that surrounds the park. Some actually paint while they are there as you walk around them. It's also at the beginning of the French market area.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

The square itself is open everyday, 8am to 7pm. Most shops and restaurants around the square are open much later.
