Walking Tours

Join us for a free Walking Tour before we kick off Downriver Festival 2018! We will explore the riverfront from Canal Street to the Bywater, including recently revamped Woldenberg Park and Crescent Park. Meet some of the landscape architects and urban designers helping to reimagine the Mississippi River waterfront, and learn more about plans to transform former wharves into public space from the city and Audubon Commission. The walking tour begins on Saturday, September 8 at 9 am at the New Orleans Jazz Museum gates on Esplanade Ave, and concludes in Jackson Square at 10:30 am - just in time for the Kinfolk Brass Band Second Line!

The Walking Tour will be led by Nathan Lott, Director of Water Collaborative and feature special guests: Amanda Rivera, Eskew Dumez + Ripple (Crescent Park), K.C. Guidry, Audubon Nature Institute (Gov. Nichols Wharf near French Market), Kerri Maggio and Johanna Leibe, Perez Architects (Moonwalk)
