    An active, family-friendly walk along the length of the Lafitte Greenway, commemorating New Orleans' Tricentennial.

    The Hike Friends of Lafitte Greenway's annual flagship event began in 2006 as community members bushwhacked along and overgrown railroad with dreams of a trail. Today, we hike the length of the Lafitte Greenway to learn about and celebrate New Orleans' history and culture with a guided tour, live musical entertainment, a block party, and opportunities for community input.

    Did you know there are about 500 new trees on the Greenway? Take a walk with us to learn all about them!

    We’ll learn about the trees of the Greenway, how they help to prevent flooding, and how to care for them from Landscape architect Susannah Bridges-Burley, Founder and Director of Sustaining Our Urban Landscape (SOUL). After the walk, join us for happy hour and discussion with fellow tree-lovers at Bayou Beer Garden.

    What if it's raining? In case of rain or inclement weather this event will be rescheduled.
