Rivertown's Features and Attractions

Kenner's Rivertown is proud to be home to the following attractions suitable for residents and vistors of all ages!

************************************************************************************************************************

LaSalle's Landing

LaSalle’s Landing is located at the southernmost end of Williams Boulevard at the foot of levee.  This area boasts not only historical significance, but it also satisfies the curiosity in us all to witness the strength and power of the mighty Mississippi River.  Trek up of the levee and test your knowledge of Louisiana history as you stroll under the flags of ten different countries, all of which at some point governed our home state.  Once at the top, visitors can soak in the sights of magnificent ships, tugboats and other vessels navigating the river.  A well maintained bike and walking path also awaits at the top for those seeking further adventure!

Theatre 13 is proud to present a wonderful line up of productions at the Rivertown Theaters for the Performing Arts!

Kenner's Heritage Park

Kenner's colorful cultural history is celebrated in a replicated village of days gone by. Stroll down beautifully landscaped walkways, pass buildings such as a turn-of-the-century packing shed, ice house, traditional blacksmith shop, and a 1930's era gas station. The newest additions to the site are a beautiful pond and covered bridge adjacent to the replica of St. Mary's Church, the first Catholic church in Kenner.  Heritage Park is ONLY open to the general public on Saturdays from 11am-3pm during the Rivertown Museums' regular hours of operation unless otherwise reserved for a private function or a City of Kenner event.  We do not schedule appointments or take reservations for private photo sessions.  If you wish to take photos, you may do so on Saturdays from 11am until 3pm.
