The area around it isn't the best, however the park is quite lovely and very large. The archway can be seen for blocks.

This is just at the top of the French Quarter and is worth a quick stop. The impressive entrance is a stand out, as you cross the threshold you have different paths to take and there is several areas to review some history. I didn't...More

This is a beautiful park with plaques honoring the history of the slaves in New Orleans. It's also a celebration of Louis Armstrong's history and it's wonderful! The statues and incredible and the plaques with the written history are a must to read and appreciate.

This is a pretty park with a beautiful archway and tributes to the icons of Jazz. It is an easy walk from the French Quarter down streets lined with quaint houses.

Coming to the Louis Armstrong Park from the French Quarter, you enter through an impressive archway. A pleasant park with statues, the historic congo square, memorials, a theatre and impressive night time illuminations.

We visited this park on a tour which gave us some deeper insight. Apparently people draw in chalk on the hardscape as a voodoo ritual. We saw one area where a chalk drawing was on the ground.

This small park is located on the northern part of the French Quarter. They say jazz was originated here. The small garden has a few amazing trees.

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.
