<p>Friends of Lafitte Greenway (Friends) is a community-driven non-profit committed to the mission to build, program, and promote the Lafitte Greenway as a great public space. Our vision is a healthy and vibrant Greenway that connects people to nature, their destinations, and each other. </p><p>Friends was formed in early 2006 by New Orleans community members who saw an opportunity to rethink their community’s landscape to enhance livability, environmental sustainability, open space equity, health, and revitalization. The organization built a network of diverse constituents who shared its vision of preserving the continuous open space in the former Lafitte rail corridor, and developing a Greenway that encourages active living, stimulates economic development, and links adjacent neighborhoods, cultural amenities, historic sites, and public spaces. </p><p>The Lafitte Greenway opened in November 2015 as a 2.6 mile pedestrian and bike path and linear park, connecting neighborhoods from Armstrong Park to City Park. The Lafitte Greenway is a public park, managed by the City of New Orleans and the New Orleans Recreation Development Commission (NORD) in close partnership with Friends of Lafitte Greenway. Working through a formal public-private-partnership agreement with the City and NORD, we collaborate to program, develop, and steward the Greenway. </p><p>Friends is guided by a Board of Directors, members, volunteers, and staff. We deliver high-quality programming and projects, communications, and advocacy and improvements to make the Greenway an excellent public space for the New Orleans community.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
