New Orleans officials celebrate opening of Lafitte Greenway


Mayor Mitch Landrieu handed Sophie Harris the blue ribbon wrapped around the sign announcing an ambitious 3-mile park that links Mid-City with the French Quarter, a project imagined over decades and completed nine years after residents ? the Friends of the Lafitte Corridor (FOLC) ? started planning how to make it reality.

"It took a village," Harris, director of FOLC, told Gambit on Nov. 5 after city officials formally opened the Lafitte Greenway.*The LED-lighted bike and pedestrian path stretches from Mid-City at Bayou St. John to the edge of the French Quarter, with gardens, parks, soccer fields and other community spaces planned along the trail. FOLC has led the planning process since 2006, and the group didn't lose hope despite canceled projects and delayed construction starts.?
