Wag! Walkers know Lower Garden District

The Lower Garden District is located on the south side of the New Orleans downtown area with the northern section of the district extending into the commercial core. This is a mixed-use neighborhood with commercial activity that is well distributed throughout the neighborhood and concentrated along commercial corridors such as Jackson Avenue, Magazine Street, and St. Charles Avenue, which are lined with restaurants and shops. There is even a dog-friendly restaurant called “Slice” which allows pets on their outdoor patio. The northern section of the district has more commercial activity, so residents of the area can easily walk without needing to use a vehicle. 

While dog walkers do not have to contend with frigid winter weather, they do need to take precautions in scorching summer weather. Hot, humid conditions can cause heat stress to pets and people while walking. Stay hydrated and pick cooler times of the day to take your dog out for a stroll.

What is the terrain like in Lower Garden District?

Although flooding can occur in this area, it is more protected from this issue by its location and elevation than some surrounding neighborhoods. The Mississippi River is situated on the southeast side of the neighborhood with St. Charles Avenue on the northwest, Jackson Avenue on the southwest, and Julia Street on the north side. The Pontchartrain Expressway runs through the north side but is elevated with local streets running underneath it that provide access to the northern section of the neighborhood. 


This is a neighborhood of beautiful, architecturally significant homes. Many 19th century homes include neoclassical mansions and a variety of beautiful unique dwellings and structures grace the streets of the neighborhood. Homes are closely set on narrow roads with sidewalks located throughout the area. Huge trees provide shade to the area while train tracks run along the river. The terrain is flat and there are no steep hills to climb when strolling with your pet in the area.

How many greenways are there in Lower Garden District?

Two beautiful neighborhood parks provide greenways that are easy to access on foot by Lower Garden District residents and their pups. Annunciation Street is a 3.5-acre greenway with a large open area. The entrance to the park has a metalwork gate and there are metal lamp posts in the park that add character and highlight the park's historic nature. Amenities in the park include a walking path, picnic tables, and a playground. The park has beautiful shade trees around its perimeter and there is a central circular feature.

Coliseum Square Park is a triangular shaped park with trees more evenly distributed throughout, providing shade and shelter. The park has a fountain and circular features. Many paved walking trails crisscross the park, providing great paths for strolls.

Keep your dog leashed in both local greenways and bring supplies to clean up after your pet and to maintain the beauty of these parks for other users.
