I don’t want to be in love but you’re makin’ me

 

Sitting on naturally higher ground, nestled in between the Garden District and the Central Business District, you will find the Lower Garden District (aka the LGD). This neighborhood is bustling!

There is a real mix of residential and commercial life happening in this area with shopping, restaurants, local watering holes, historic homes, and more – ALL of the things are happening here!  The only downfall to this constant flow of action is parking.

Luckily, most everything you will need is a walk or bike-ride away so you can park your car and hit the streets. Another bonus is when you do need to drive, everything is easy to get to from the LGD – from Downtown to Uptown, Westbank to Metairie.

The convenience factor is real, y’all.

 

Residents will tell you the Lower Garden District is a very close-knit and passionate neighborhood, where people know and look out for one another. They are very active and vocal about their desire to preserve and improve their beloved community.

Have a dog? Go on over to Coliseum Square Park; it’s a perfect place for both you and Fido to make new friends. Take a moment to admire the gorgeous fountain in the park as well!

 

Lagniappe: The primary streets running perpendicular to the river are named for the nine ancient  Greek muses — Calliope,  Clio,  Erato,  Thalia, Melpomene, Terpsichore, Euterpe, Polymnia, and Urania.

Lower Garden District Neighborhood Photos

The architecture in the Lower Garden District is rich and diverse with styles ranging from Greek Revival and Italianate to Queen Anne and eclectically styled shotguns. Most noteworthy are the double galleries and generous porches.

Here in the LGD, you will also see multi-story residential buildings built of brick – which is different from what you will find in other New Orleans neighborhoods.
