Hike the Lafitte Corridor will take place this year on April 16, 2011 beginning at 10:00 a.m. Since establishment, each year Friends of Lafitte Corridor (FOLC) holds a hike where they lead the community through the three-mile stretch that will soon be constructed into a greenway. The greenway will link neighborhoods including the French Quarter, Tremé, Mid-City, Faubourg St. John, City Park and Lakeview.
“Once you actually walk the length of the future greenway site, it makes it easier to see the potential such a project will have on our neighborhoods and community,” stated FOLC president Bart Everson. One of our goals is to make sure the neighbors and community in the areas closely affected are part of the building and planning process.”
Details on additional activities, partnerships and information regarding Hike the Lafitte Corridor 2011 will be announced soon. For more information, please visit the FOLC website at folc-nola.org.
