Our Impact & Why We Care
Since 1979, Friends of City Park has been committed to maintaining and increasing the value and importance of City Park as a place of natural beauty, culture, recreation, and education for the public and has contributed to over 40 improvement projects. Over the last ten years, Friends of City Park has raised more than $3.8 million dollars for projects that include the restoration of the Historic Wooden Carousel, the restoration of the Peristyle, help in funding the construction of City Putt, NOLA City Bark, the Conservatory of the Two Sisters, Marconi Drive Bike Path, and so much more.
Urban parks, like New Orleans City Park, help mitigate the harmful effects of pollution, encourage biodiversity, help to control temperatures and humidity, and are havens for numerous animal and plant species.
Mental & Physical Health
Access to nature helps us to relax and give us a break from our daily routines. New Orleans City Park is the ideal place for physical activities.
New Orleans City Park is the meeting place for neighbors and tourists of all ages. It is a venue for concerts, exhibitions, museums, and cultural values.
