Friends of Lafitte Greenway working to extend the 2.6-mile linear park

Anyone who’s walked, jogged, biked, or otherwise traversed the Lafitte Greenway knows it’s a boon for New Orleanians in general and residents of the six neighborhoods it connects in particular. Developed along a defunct railway à la Atlanta’s Beltline and New York’s High Line, the Greenway has served as a catalyst for business growth and cultural preservation since opening in 2015. Community gardens, bioswales, murals, playgrounds, bike share stations, businesses, fitness parks, and housing developments line its 2.6 miles.
