Friends of Lafitte Greenway

General Info


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.
