2018 is shaping up as the year of the Year of the Parks. Audubon is working on a master plan, City Park is looking for revenues from gambling and a millage. Two wharves in the French Quarter are to be converted to a public park. Meanwhile, area residents are working to preserve and improve everything from the smallest pocket park to Joe Brown Park and stretches of the Lakefront. What does the 21st Century hold for our parks, and what do we need to do to pass these resources on to the next generation.? Join Landmarks for a panel discussion on the future of parks in New Orleans.
