Description:
Woldenberg Park, New Orleans LA USA

Woldenberg Park is a riverfront free access park on the Mississippi River in New Orleans LA. Woldenberg Park is on the New Orleans side near Algiers Point on the River along the Old British and French Quarter’s of New Orleans. From this point you are able to see the ships as the make the sharp (near 90 degrees) on the river with strong currents. The park is a favorite site for concerts and festivals, which may affect access to the park and area. See link for further –

The Mississippi River is one busiest waterways in North America and see frequent traffic from both ocean going vessels and tug/barge combinations. Ship traffic includes tankers, container ships, bulk cargo ships, and container ships.

Parking is an issue in this part of New Orleans LA and pay parking is the only option. During my visit I parked my vehicle at my hotel (paid for parking) and walked everywhere I wanted to go. There are public pay transportation (cabs, etc.) as an option. The walkway is handicap accessible. Strangely, public restrooms could not be found. There a plethora of very nice restaurants within easy walking distance.

New Orleans is a convention and party town, however if you do some research you should be able to schedule your visit when the number of conventions and visitors is at a manageable level. Usually, except during Mardi Gras and other festivals, the start of the week is less busy.

I mostly walked around town during daylight hours and was inside by 9 or 10 at night at the latest. During this time I had no problems with personal security and was able to comfortably carry my camera and personal items in a book bag without problems. I did stay in public and well lighted areas.

This picture was taken from the tour/lunch-dinner river steam boat Natchez. There is a coast to this, but would recommend taking the tour if you can. Please see link for further-

The picture shows the gazebo/pavilion I took many of my pictures from.

Hope this helps.
