The French Quarter is bordered by the Mississippi River to the southeast, North Rampart Street to the northwest, Iberville Street on the southwest, and Esplanade Street to the northeast. The neighborhood is the oldest neighborhood in New Orleans and is a designated historic district with many buildings constructed in the late 1700s and early 1800s. Development and renovations of existing buildings and new structures must be in keeping with the character of the community.  

Streets are narrow with low rise, usually two-story buildings, set close to the streets. Structures have ornate architectural and ironwork that makes an interesting backdrop for a stroll with your furry friend. There are sidewalks throughout the neighborhood which is flat and easy to traverse. Train tracks along the river should only be crossed at designated crossing spots. This region can be busy with tourists and traffic, so your dog should be used to the noise to be comfortable on daily walks in the area.
