Parks and Parkways

The Department of Parks and Parkways manages over 2,000 acres of public parks, squares, recreation areas, neutral grounds, a golf course, and more across New Orleans. These community spaces see over 13 million visits yearly for enjoyment, events, exercise, and neighborhood gatherings. Over 450,000 street trees also line roadways to enhance quality of life.

Preserving green spaces remains vital for connecting people and enhancing livability as our city grows. We nurture these invaluable community assets so their beauty, memories, and experiences resonate for generations.

All requests for tree and neutral ground grass service should be routed through the 311 system.
