Cantrell Celebrates Completion of $1.9M Greenway Clubhouse

Lafitte Greenway Clubhouse CropNEW ORLEANS — Mayor LaToya Cantrell joined other city officials last week to celebrate the opening of the $1.9 million Lafitte Greenway Clubhouse. The new clubhouse is home to a 1,570-square-foot concession and restroom facility along with storage space and an open patio area. It will eventually have outdoor picnic tables for seating.

“This is a great investment in our infrastructure and something that will greatly improve amenities for families to enjoy the park facilities,” said Cantrell. “The Greenway has become an integral part of the interior of the city, and I cannot wait to see the activity it will generate in the area for years to come. Thank you to all of our departments that worked on this effort, and to our partners that advocated to make this a reality.”

The building is located on the southern end of the Lafitte Greenway Park amid the outdoor sports field area. The building was intentionally elevated to enhance its storm water resilience capabilities. The 2.6-mile-long Lafitte Greenway has become one of NORD’s most versatile park and multi-use properties in the City.
