American Aquatic Gardens
Faubourg Marigny ("fauborg" is French for suburb) was developed in the 1800s by Bernard Marigny, a wealthy planter. If you cross Esplanade Avenue from the French Quarter, you will find coffee houses, bookstores, restaurants, and music clubs equal to those found in the neighboring Quarter. Bernard would be proud of all the beautiful greenery found amid this little neighborhood, especially that of the American Aquatic Gardens. On a good weather day it is a nice walk to this commercial nursery. This is a wonderfully relaxing place to observe a variety of grasses, reeds, and water lilies. Several artistic fountains create pleasant water sounds.
I was visiting New Orleans during Spring Break from Atlanta. I just love this place! There are soooo many nice fountains, flowers, plants and accessories. And the sound is so peaceful with the water falls and wind chimes. Don't forget the friendly staff. I returned the following day and they remembered me. Very personal and warm group. I will be back!!
There is nothing like this place for a feeling of peace and tranquility. An amazing collection of art, sculpture, gifts, plants, and all types (and price ranges) of fountains.
It is impossible to visit and not feel better than when you walked in the entrance, and pretty darn hard not to buy something that you will truly love! Highly recommended.
We visit several times a year for new finds. The operators are very helpful, and pleasant to visit. Very talented at their profession, to say the least. We encourage all our friends to visit at least once and enjoy. You cannot leave without purchasing something. You will always find something no-one else has.
friendly, affordable, eye candy, large selection of gifts, plants, sculpture, knowlegeble personal service, easy parking, walkable from the quarter, lots of gardening tools, books for the novice water gardener.
