Washington Square Park

Park in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Also known as ‘Marigny Green,' this park is a popular spot for locals to play with their dogs, toss Frisbees and, based on the frequent smell, smoke things that aren’t cigarettes. There’s a touching HIV/AIDS memorial on the northern side of the park. Be aware the park can be a congregation point for the homeless and those suffering from addiction and mental-health issues.
