Crescent Park

The idea of creating a park to open up the riverfront to the citizens of New Orleans is championed by everyone. For those neighborhoods that are in close proximity to the proposed park, concerns have been expressed to make sure the design and operation of the park mitigated the inevitable negative impacts associated with such a large scale development. Although the idea is championed, many hold reservations due to the fact that the designers of the park (Reinventing the Crescent) were not listening to the concerns of those most affected: the residents of the adjacent neighborhoods.
