The Lafitte Greenway is a 2.6-mile public bicycle and pedestrian trail, connecting six historic New Orleans neighborhoods from Armstrong Park to City Park. Opened in 2015, the Greenway features sports fields, grassy lawns, lighting, and innovative stormwater management systems.

Last year over 750 people walked together from New Orleans’ historical Armstrong Park to Second Line Brewing, learned about the Greenway’s history and features, and encountered exciting local acts along the way.
