The park honors Benjamin Latrobe, designer of the city's first waterworks.
This park surrounds the aquarium. It was named for Malcolm Woldenberg and his bronze statue is one exhibit in what has grown into an informal sculpture garden. The park is a nice place to stroll or jog along the river in nice weather. It was way to cold when we were there to do that.
It is open Mon-Thu 6am-10pm; Fri-Sun 6am-11pm
Lafayette Square is in the Warehouse District and is a quiet spot. There are some nice buildings surrounding the square.
New Orleans is now a wedding destination place. You can get a license on a Saturday and get married that night at a beautiful spot in the French Quarter or at a Park.
