Washington Square Reviews & Ratings

  • We were there only a short while, but the picture I'm seeing as part of this review is outdated. The playground has a very new, very modern aesthetic now. The kids loved it and wanted to stay longer, but we found it very close to closing time.

  • This is a small park that is great for just sitting and just enjoy some quiet alone time or just letting your kids run around and play

  • Beautiful park close to the French Quarter but several homeless people sleeping there during the day.

  • Not somewhere I'd feel comfortable bringing my children.

  • A well kept park cleaned daily currently with some construction. Beautiful weather today. Slight breeze. A very nice place to start the day.
