How to Help NOW

HOW TO HELP NEW ORLEANS CITY PARK NOW

DONATE by clicking here.

City Park generates 90% of its operating income through self-generated revenues, which are all currently closed. Our local parks, trails, and open spaces have always served as places where people can find respite and seek peace and restoration. During this time of uncertainty, these places are needed now more than ever.

Please consider a donation to help offset lost revenue during this time and sustain New Orleans City Park as a community resource. Our ability to care for City Park’s 1,300 acres is dependent on individuals just like you.

For more information on how you can support City Park or if you have questions on making a donation, please contact Casie Duplechain, Chief Development Officer, at 504-483-9360 or by emailing cduplechain@nocp.org.

VOLUNTEER by clicking here.

Our volunteers are essential to the day-to-day operation of City Park. When you volunteer your time as an individual or as part of a group, it is one of the most valuable contributions you can make, and you are building a better, stronger park for our region. This is more important than ever before in the midst of the global Covid-19 pandemic.

Volunteer today with our support organization Friends of City Park and help us keep the Park clean and beautiful. https://www.friendsofcitypark.com/volunteer/

We are taking individual volunteers and groups of no more than 25 people. Work assignments include maintaining areas around City Park. Volunteers spend time planting, painting, mulching, maintaining flowerbeds, shorelines, and trails, planting wetland grass, and even stringing holiday lights for Celebration in the Oaks.

You can also email the Park’s Volunteer Manager, Tyler Havens, at thavens@nocp.org for more information. We love our volunteers and cannot keep the Park looking as great as it does without them!

TWEETS FROM THE PARK:

CITY PARK FACTS:

At her request, upon her death in 1914, New Orleans philanthropist Sara Lavinia Hyamsí jewelry collection (valued at $30,000/at that time) was sold and the proceeds were used to construct a fountain for the children of New Orleans. The fountain is located inside the gates of Carousel Gardens.
