Tips from the community
Crescent Park is a stretch of greenspace on the banks of the Mississippi. It is located above the French Quarter in an ideal location to see the downtown city skyline. The linear park stretches for over a mile and includes dog walking & running paths, pavilions, and the entrance is conveniently located near the popular French Market and Cafe Du Monde.

Rainbow Bridge - it's the rusty bridge over the train tracks to the park. Great place to check out the city skyline, or walk down into the park up towards the Marigny for some more great views.

The path is long and ends with nice local fauna and flora and it's located on reclaimed industrial space.

- kaylee (Kaylee Giacomini) New Orleans is known for its cuisine, rich culture, unique architecture, and nightlife. But did you know that they have one of the largest city parks in the country? NOLA is home to thousands of acres of parks waiting to be explored. Some are compact oases as small as a city block, while others are lush botanical escapes on the banks of the river with babbling streams and ancient oak trees. Check out some of my favorites for when I need a break from city life.
