The Second Annual Lafitte Corridor Rail Hike was a screaming success!
On Sunday, May 21st, eighteen of us hiked about three miles from Armstrong Park to Canal Boulevard, right through Mid-City following the old Norfolk-Southern rail line. The Louisiana Institute of Film Technology is building a film studio on a key parcel of this land, and they’re including a bike path, which we hope will add momentum to our efforts. We plan to build a three mile bike path and linear park that will connect Armstrong Park to City Park and ultimately make it possible for people to walk or ride all the way from the river to the lake. Watch the MCNO website [mcno.org] for more information about how you can join the Friends of Lafitte Corridor (FOLC) and help make it happen!
