Latrobe Park

Decatur St French Quarter New Orleans

New Orleans' original waterworks, designed by architect Benjamin Latrobe, were once on this spot. Now this beautiful park incorporates some of the waterworks into its fountains and sculptures. This peaceful park is a nice shady spot to stop and enjoy peace and quiet in the bustle of the Quarter's French Market. 

Note: Avoid this spot from dusk to dawn, as it is not well-lit after dark.
