Louis Armstrong Park is a 32-acre (130,000 m2) park located in the Tremé neighborhood of New Orleans, Louisiana, just across Rampart Street from the French Quarter.
In the 1960s a controversial urban renewal project leveled a substantial portion of the Tremé neighborhood adjacent to Congo Square. After a decade of debate, the City created the present-day park from that land. This park was designed by New Orleans architect Robin Riley and was named after New Orleans-born Jazz legend Louis Armstrong.

Walked through here last week and really enjoyed the statues. Cool place to check out when your near or in the French Quarters. Not a huge location but gives you bit of a break from the craziness of the French Quarters. Has a few historical things within it also that are worth seeing.

A great park that is adjacent to the French Quarters. It has some of the best historical statues you can find in the area. A definite must when visiting the French Quarters.

Great park and the feeling I had when I went to this park was unexplainable... small wooden bridges, lot of green and trees and in every side of the park you will see statues and columns with the jazz history of New Orleans and theme of African culture as well... amazing experience there and they doing a good work keeping this place clean... special moment was the African style music band it was there dancing and singing African songs... P.S. the sad part of this story was the homeless people sleeping on the roads of the park... someone should do something for this issue because those people freezing ever night and especially with the temperatures all of those days... may god take care after them...

The louis armstrong park located is on the edge of the french quarter and is very lovely. Nice walking area with large willow trees, water, fountains, exotic birds and people, but a comfortable safe atmosphere. many historic statues and plaques adorn the park. wonder spot to stop and smell the roses.

There's a lot to see here at Louis Armstrong Park and Congo Square. It's full of culture and an accessible way to learn more about black history and the Tremé neighborhood. There's a number of sculptures to visit via tree lined paths and ponds. While we were there, Prospect.4 had an exhibit "The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp." It's very walkable from the French Quarter and not far from a number of other things to see and learn in the Tremé area.
