NEW ORLEANS, LA – Today, the City of New Orleans and the New Orleans Recreation and Development Commission reopened Wisner Playground at 4877 Laurel Street in the West Riverside neighborhood following a $309,000 improvement project to the facility. Enhancements include landscaping, seating, garbage cans, and a dog run allowing pet owners to walk their dogs off-leash in a designated, fenced area.
