    We enjoyed our short walk on a trail into the marsh. There are other (longer hikes) too. The park ranger at the visitor center was friendly and helpful. We saw a couple of small alligators and a few birds. Other than that, it was interesting to see the change in vegetation from swampland to marsh. It was useful to have bugspray and a hat. Would’ve been great to have binoculars.NOTE: The only restroom is at the visitor center. It was pretty clean.

    This was our favorite touristy thing to do. It’s about 30 minutes southwest of French Quarter. And it is a bit confusing on where to park – there aren’t very good signs. If you drive down to the curvy road, and enter the park at the only marked, south most entrance – there is a welcome center type thing, with bathrooms, and filtered water to fill up a nalgene bottle or whatever. Then you walk the path up to a second un-marked parking lot, and then to a final third final point. YOU NEED BUG SPRAY or long sleeves / long pants. There are weird biting bug things that look like moths, but fly into your face/ears/arms/legs. My wife rolled her eyes when I was putting on long sleeves, in 90F weather, when we were approaching the entrance. HA! I won that one. (for once). There are well built wooden slat bridges the whole way – because you are over 2ft deep swamp water the whole time. There ARE live alligators along the paths, and snakes too. These can easily get onto the paths. And the park rangers..? Are there any? I don’t know. So keep an eye our for “moving black logs”. Leave your wallet in the car – this one is free.Visited June 2014

    An excellent way to spend 15 minutes in downtown New Orleans if you’re looking for something free to do which has information about the history of the area. Some of the displays are a little outdated or non-operational, but hey, it’s free.
