AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Developed in 1984 around the time of the World’s Fair, Woldenberg Park is a great place to spend a beautiful afternoon in New Orleans. The park stretches from the back of the French Market to the Aquarium of the Americas and features 16 acres of grass, benches and walkways along the Mississippi River. Lounging in Riverfront Park is one of the top things to in New Orleans for a relaxing morning or picnic lunch. New Orleans is a busy port and this is our favorite place to come to watch ships from around the world glide up and down the river. A streetcar runs along the back of the park and the steamboat SS Natchez leaves from behind the Jax Brewery building. The park is safe by day but it’s not a good idea to wander here alone late at night.
