Alcee Fortier Park

Park in Mid-City, Bayou St John & City Park

This pretty park, strung up with lights and lanterns and decked out with funky furniture, sits across the road from one of the most attractive stretches of Esplanade Ave, an area replete with restaurants, shops and a general breezy ambience. Movies are sometimes screened here on evenings, especially for kids.

A good spot for a picnic, but you should know there are occasionally homeless people around as well.
