What is the Lafitte Corridor?

The Lafitte Corridor consists of the Lafitte Greenway open space and the neighborhoods located within approximately one-quarter mile of the Greenway's footprint. These neighborhoods include portions of the French Quarter, Tremé, Bayou St. John, and Mid-City. 


Where did the funding for the Lafitte Greenway's construction come from?

The $9.1 million in funding has been secured by the City largely from federal Disaster Community Development Block Grant (D-CDBG) money from HUD as well as $87,000 that Friends of Lafitte Corridor raised, thanks to the Recreational Trails Program.
