Lafitte Greenway Gallivant

  • Congo Square

The Lafitte Greenway Gallivant will lead Jane’s Walkers on an exploration of the future Lafitte Corridor. The planned urban pathway endeavors to reconnect New Orleans vibrant neighborhoods and revive one of the city’s historic transportation routes. The walk will provide a platform to discuss local businesses, housing and transportation infrastructure, potential for growth as well as the challenges we face as a community in developing the Lafitte Greenway. This informational walk also serves to illuminate the rich culture of the diverse and resilient residents of the Lafitte Corridor. Look for your Jane’s Walk guides wearing their certified Greeway Ambassador t-shirts.
