City reopens Wisner Playground following park improvements

December 06, 2013

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. 

“The City of New Orleans is committed to improving neighborhood parks and playgrounds,” Mayor Mitch Landrieu said. “The enhancements to Wisner Playground, including the new dog run, will benefit the entire West Riverside community. Pet owners have asked for more designated space to walk their dog off-leash and the City is delivering.”  click here to continue reading
