POPP’S FOUNTAIN

POPP'S FOUNTAIN

As the WPA was working throughout New Orleans, City Park received a great number of their projects, one being Popp’s Fountain built in 1937. Once rumored to be a sacred place for a local witches’ coven and now a favorite location for romantic weddings. The fountain is grandiose, surrounded by a Corinthian circular colonnade, with two magnificent pillars framing the fountain’s entrance. Popp’s fountain is well worth a visit to discover one of City Park’s many forgotten treasures.
