A great place to walk, play, sit in the shade or soak up some sun. We spent about an hour here walking around and taking in the sights.

The park was a little unkept and some street people or drugies were we hanging around. There were some nice garden affects but if I had other choices I would go someplace else.

Beautiful park with statues telling of the history of the place. Jazz and modern music was born here.

Went on a walking tour. Great park. Lots of history, nice to walk in. Safe. Still not back 100%, but awesome venue for entertainment. Easy access with the new street car line outside the main gate.

It's a picturesque place that needs some love. Great feeling but unkempt. Definitely worth the short walk from Bourbon to see some of its natural beauty.

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.
