Crescent Park - Review

The Crescent Park is a part of the French Market District and covers a stretch of 1.4 miles along the Mississippi river. The park is loved by bikers and walkers for its pathways that offer a fabulous view of the river and the lush-green surrounding.

Crescent Park, New Orleans Reviews

  • Crescent Park is a great little area to take a stroll or jog along the river. It has great little garden areas and a small dog park to let your dogs off leash and run. We use the park regularly to cut over to the French Quarters, this was nice as we didn't have to walk down the roads. It's nice to see that they kept a lot of the history of the area when developing this park. They kept portions of old buildings and really kept with the theme when adding new elements.

  • ADA friendly-riverside park. It doesn't get more "Bywater" than this! The 1.4-mile long park is safe & serene, but you can't get in/out just anywhere - Crescent Park has only 3 entrances: [West Entrance]: Near French Market, just off Elysian Fields - there is an elevator/staircase at 2300 Peters Ave. The park's **only restrooms** are located here. [Middle Entrance - not ADA]: Rusty Rainbow Bridge is at the intersection of Chartres and Piety St. It's a great place to jump off the Trail and explore Bywater - you have Dr. Bob's Folk Art a few minutes' walk west, Elizabeth's praline bacon a few minutes east and a bunch of shops and places to eat to the north along Piety and Louisa. [East Entrance]: Bartholomew St entrance is closest to the Crescent Park Dog Run. There is a ramp up from Chartres that crosses the railroad tracks. Get off here and head over to Bacchanal (21+) for drinks and live music or check and see if Music Box Village is hosting public hours (good for all ages). Perfect spot to enjoy the weather for a daylight run or a sunset stroll. Crescent Park begins at the French Market and runs east along the Mississippi River. It is a linear park, meaning it's a generous paved walkway surrounded by greenery and fenced in by the railroad to the north and off-limits river coast to the south.

  • Gorgeous landscaping with an array or plants, trees, shrubs, and flowers. Add that with an up close and personal view of the Mississippi with its traffic of ships and vessels! Ample free parking with restaurants surrounding Crescent Park. Most impressive part of this park is the stair crossing from the parking lot-amazing architecture.

  • Crescent Park is a linear park along the Mississippi River with a greenway trail leading to the French Market. If you're willing to walk a mile or two, it provides safe and free parking to access the French Quarter. I parked at the far end and walked along the greenway to French Market and then Jackson Square. A few walkers, joggers and folks walking their dogs, but otherwise not crowded at all, compared to the French Quarter. About half way through the park is the rusty rainbow bridge that provides access to another parking area. It's steep, but the top provides nice views of the river and New Orleans skyline. Overall, a great place for a relaxing walk along the river and great for free, easy parking to access the French Quarter.

  • Awesome park to visit. Located really close to the French Market but always feel secluded from the hustle and bustle of the city. The views are just fantastic. Definitely come here for the sunrise/set. Jogging here is also relaxing. A whole to-and-from is 1.4 miles. Parking is pretty ample as well.
