Tips from the community

Washington Artillery Park is one of the smallest parks on this list, but it is certainly impressive for only being the size of a city block. The Park is in the heart of the French Quarter in front of Jackson Square and overlooking the Mississippi. Walk through Jackson Square to enter and check out some of the impressive artists selling their work or the street performers that always gather a crowd. Some say that this is one of the most haunted places in the city. Skeptical? Check it out for yourself or take any French Quarter ghost tour to learn more.

    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.
