Waldenburg Riverfront Walk and Brunch

Named after philanthropist Malcolm Woldenberg, the Riverfront was opened to the public before the 1984 World's Fair. Floodwalls, warehouses and industrial docks have been replaced by jumping off points for steamboat and dinner cruises. Accessible wide, bricked walkways wind through lush landscape and public art.

On a given day, it is not unusual to visit Woldenberg Park and run into a school group visiting New Orleans or a couple getting married with the River as their backdrop. Visitors are sometimes serenaded by local musicians and street performers. For a quiet stroll or a peaceful jog, visit the park in the morning – this is also the best time to catch a cool breeze or see the fog roll off the Mississippi.

Throughout the year there are events that take place in Woldenberg Park. The main stages of the French Quarter Festival are in the park. This free April Festival features the best New Orleans musical performers and is a great pre-curser to Jazz Fest. There are also smaller, intimate concerts at the outdoor amphitheatre throughout the year.

    I went to the newly renovated and expanded Riverwalk and it is fabulous. Many new shops and eating venues. When I tried to pay for nearly four hours of parking, then took my parking ticket and said it was already paid for. FREE parking. What luck? Saving $14. I will put that money in the collection plate at mass, this afternoon, at Holy Name of Mary Catholic Church, in Algiers Point.

    Great time! Great people! Had to hurry the walking tour, though, in order to make it back to the restaurant in time to eat.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
