Saturday, May 30: Both Joe W. Brown and Treme Pools will open at 11am so that we can conduct summer lifeguard orientations 8-11am.
The Stallings Gentilly pool is scheduled to open the week of June 7th in order to allow contractors to complete standard pre-summer season maintenance work. This work was delayed by the heavy rains last week. Please check the website for updates on the exact opening date. Once open, the pool is scheduled to remain in operation for an extended season, until September 6th.
Construction on the new NORDC Stallings St. Claude Recreation Center and Pool will be completed in the coming weeks. The contractor is working diligently to complete the remaining work so the public can enjoy this new, state-of-the-art facility. We eagerly anticipate the recreation center and pool opening in the coming weeks. NORDC will announce the opening date and the recreation center’s summer programming soon. Thank you for your continued patience.
The new Andrew P. Sanchez & Copelin-Byrd Multi-Service Center is now open (but note that the pool will open on June 1 at 8am. “Today, we celebrate another sign of renewal and reinvestment in the historic Lower Ninth Ward,” Mayor Mitch Landrieu said. “As one of my administration’s committed capital projects, the new Sanchez Center is a symbol of this community’s rebirth. Nearly ten years ago, Hurricane Katrina brought New Orleans to its knees but today we are standing taller than ever and the Lower Ninth Ward continues to rise. This community is the true definition of resilience. Now, our young people have a safe place to grow, learn and play in this state-of-the-art community center that will offer enrichment and important community services to residents of all ages.” Read more about the Sanchez Center here.
