Welcome to Westwego, Louisiana!

Westwego is a small city that is located on the West Bank of the Mississippi River in the heart of Jefferson Parish. With its stable population and slow, sustainable growth within its roughly one square mile footprint, Westwego represents, in many ways, a model community, steeped in historic roots of South Louisiana and coastal waters, a culturally diverse hard-working community of independent stature. Westwego, with its historic Sala Avenue, Shrimp Lot, and Bayou Segnette State Park, is a great place to visit and is located just 15 minutes from downtown New Orleans.
