Best view of the city. Beautiful flowers line the walking paths. Lush green grass runs from the walls blocking the tracks from view to the river. More often than not a breeze comes up off the water. There is a fenced in dog park located at the end farthest from the quarter. The only issue is accessibility. There are only three entrances and exits from the park. The one farthest from the quarter can sometimes be blocked by a train making you have to walk half way back across the entire length of the park to get out.
Beautiful place. Had a great time. Love it here. You should definitely go see it. I really recommend
This is one of those wonderful out-of-the-way hidden gems in New Orleans you get a wonderful view of the city and of the Mississippi and the park usually is somewhat empty. It has free parking on the far end of the park. It's perfect for running biking and walking. It even has a dog park!
Not a bad place to go for a walk and actually get to see the river and a bridge and a few boats and ships. Could be a lot more charming, a bit too industrial for my taste.
This park appears to be a hidden gem of the city. A little out of the way and very quiet compared to just about everywhere else. It is very well maintained and is a great place to jog or ride a bike. If you need a place to stretch your legs without being surrounded by tourists this is the place.
