The Parks Build Community Project is a national initiative by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA). Each year the NRPA conducts a complete park makeover in partnership with equipment manufacturers and the local host city. This year the Parks Build Community Project will revitalize Lemann Playground on the Lafitte Greenway by adding new amenities including playgrounds with swing sets, outdoor fitness equipment, two basketball courts, bleachers and high mass lighting on the multi-purpose field.
The Lemann Playground Ribbon Cutting & Community Celebration is Sunday, September 24, 2017 from 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. on the Lafitte Greenway. The event will feature a second line, short program, live music, and activities for the community. The second line begins at 1:30 p.m. at the corner of Claiborne Ave. and Lafitte. Live music performances by DJ Chicken, the Washitaw Nation Mardi Gras Indians, Mamma Patrina Peters, and the Original Royal Players. This event is open to the community, all ages welcome.
