Visitors to New Orleans this Mardi Gras season will find a new and as yet unbeaten path in the city. The Lafitte Greenway Bicycle and Pedestrian Path is a 2.6-mile linear park that links several neighborhoods, from the French Quarter and Treme to Bayou St. John and Mid-City. Originally a canal site and later transformed by a railroad, the new park includes a 12-foot-wide asphalt path for cycling, running and walking, as well as new recreation fields and over 500 newly planted trees.
