City of New Orleans announces opening of Bywater section of Crescent Park

After nearly eight years of planning, construction and several delays, the City of New Orleans announced Monday (Feb. 24) the opening of the Bywater portion of the new Crescent Park.

The 1.4-mile long recreational area running along the Mississippi River from Elysian Fields Avenue to Mazant Street, includes 20-acres of indigenous landscaping, a network of paths for walking, jogging, and biking, picnic areas, benches, a dog run, and two multi-use pavilions.

“As one of my administration’s committed capital projects, Crescent Park will further anchor redevelopment and revitalization and serve as an important gathering place or residents and visitors alike,” Mayor Mitch Landrieu said in a statement. “The Mississippi River is a cherished resource, and this park will offer the public even more access to its beauty. This park is another sign that we are building the city we always knew we could be.”

The portion of Crescent Park currently open to the public is from Mazant to Montegut streets, according to city officials.

Today Broadmoor is not only thriving as a neighborhood, it wants to be an educational hub for the city. Broadmoor and the new Rosa Keller Library & Community Center’s vast array of programs expand the very idea of what education means.

Office Winter Olympics :: Rochambeau

Office Winter Olympics :: Rochambeau

​We’re getting down to the wire on this one, folks, and rachambeau (aka. snowball, blanket, ski poles) battles are going down throughout the studio this morning! *Any battles not determined and reported to the WOC (Winter Olympics Committee) by lunchtime will be forfeited.*

Today is the last day of the Office Winter Olympic Games! It’s been quite a week of preparation leading up to the finals, but there’s still time to lay claim to honor and bragging rights before the final ceremonies on Monday - if for nothing else but the opportunity to own an original medal design by the awesome archi-duo Adam and Kim.

Best of luck, competitors!
