Louis Armstrong Park
Louis Armstrong Park made of grassy knolls and lagoons is named after world-famous musician and native son, Louis Armstrong. His statue, by Elizabeth Cartlett, is near the brightly lit entrance on the outer boundary of the French Quarter. Ironically, Armstrong was not allowed to play in the now well-known clubs during his career. Other landmarks including Congo Square and the Morris F.X. Jeff Municipal Auditorium surround the park.

The area around it is sort of desolate (despite the fact that it's about four blocks from bourbon street). However, don't stop this from going. It might be more crowded at a different time (we were there in the afternoon/evening).
