CITY PARK
In-Nature Expansion
Parks for All recently presented a plan to connect Scout Island & Couterie Forest, the last naturally forested areas in City Park.  The plan would seamlessly increase one's "in-nature" experience: the opportunity to experience a long shaded walk in a beautiful natural setting.  The plan also calls for convenient access to the area.

CITY MASTER PLAN AMENDMENTS
Protecting NOLA Green Space

Parks for All submitted amendments to the City Master Plan providing protection to open green space and a venue for robust public input regarding parks. The amendments, sponsored by Mayor-Elect LaToya Cantrell  were voted on February 22, 2018. Here are the Top 10 wins from the process

City Beautiful is the enhancement of public areas right where you live. It includes any public green space, whether a bus stop or street intersection.   Show your love for a greener NOLA.

Dedicated to the Creation, Maintenance and Beautification of

Public Parks, Playgrounds & Green Space throughout New Orleans.

PFA is developing an online report card to grade parks and open spaces of all sizes.  Parks will be graded on different categories. This guide will assist us in our goal of a beautified and accessible park system.
