Friends of Lafitte Greenway seeks to revitalize the Lafitte Corridor by working to build, program and promote the Lafitte Greenway as a great public space.
We envision a completed public trail through the Lafitte Corridor that:
- links neighborhoods from Treme to Lakeview;
- provides a safe path of travel for individuals and families between homes, schools, businesses and community resources;
- increases transportation options, especially for people who do not have access to a car;
- provides useful community space to be shaped and used by the residents of neighborhoods adjacent to the Corridor;
- enhances recreational opportunites for all residents and visitors including the elderly and disabled;
- demonstrates best practices in sustainability; and
- educates visitors about the cultural and economic history of New Orleans and the city’s relationship to the larger landscape.
