Lafayette Square - Review

Lafayette Square is the second oldest square in New Orleans and was designed in the late 18th century by Charles Laveau Trudeau. The place is used for corporate events, is a preferred spot for parade-watching during the Mardi Gras and hosts the annually held ‘Wednesday Jazz festival’ which is quiet popular.

The square park is spread across 2.5 acres and the sculptures, statues and art pieces that adorn the premises, are the highlight.

Lafayette Square, New Orleans Reviews

Google+
  • Personally, I enjoyed Lafayette Square just as much as Jackson Square. It's not as crowded and there are large trees providing shade if you just want to sit for awhile. It's in a area with municipal buildings so it's not a tourist attraction. With all the people going about the business, it's a great place to just sit and observe folks.

  • Place was just very average. Food was okay. Staff just did their job, got the process going. Food did take a little long to get out, but it was on reasonable time. Only complaint I have is sticky floors. Very average restaurant. Edit - this is supposed to by for the Wendy's down the road 😂😂

  • Beautiful little square park. Nice foliage, place where a lot of festivals take place, right next to nice cafes and restaurants. Perfect place for a little picnic or meditation. Took my 2 year old here a lot to just look at flowers, birds and see people walking their dogs. Well kept by the city. Signs indicate that people run around the park and they tell you how many laps are a mile. Cool place!

  • Small park, but serves well for comfortably walking on shaded sidewalks if you work in the CBD. Also great area for playing Pokemon Go. The park is very rarely busy, unless an event is going on (ex: Wednesday at the Square).

  • Pleasant Park tucked in admit the hotels. Great place to grab a run if you don't mind running laps around the park.
