BREAKING: JOIN NOLA PARKS FOR ALL MARCH 21, 2018 FOR A PANEL DISCUSSION ON THE STATE OF NOLA PARKS
PFA is working with Lake Ponchartrain advocates to
ensure future development plans include public input from surrounding neighborhoods. Development and passive open space for the public should be considered in final plans.
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.
