Washington Artillery Park, formerly Founders Park is right off of Decatur St. There is a small ampitheater for street performers. While we were there, there was a street performance by a youth religious organization. After them they were replaced by a soloist on guitar. Behind the ampitheater are steps that lead up to the Moonwalk and a cannon. The Civil War cannon is a model of the same canon used in the Civil War and pays tribute to the 141st Field Artillery of the Louisiana National Guard.
If anything it's a great unobstructed view of the St Louis Cathedral and Jackson Square.
This small park was formerly Founders Park and was named for one of the oldest military units in the national. Lying between Jackson Square and the Leeve there are gardens, fountains, a playground and a good view of the French Quarter. The mounted canon is a model of the same canon used in the Civil War.
Here is a picturesque park, rather small, which affords good views of Jackson Square, the waterfront, the skyline, and the Mississippi River.
The Park is right in the middle of Jackson Square. It is well maintained and is closed after dark. The Cannon on exhibit was used in the Civil War.
The park isn't much except a few placards but it does provide you with an excellent elevated view of Jackson Square and St. Louis Cathedral as well as the waterfront.
