Yesterday, we kicked off National Parks & Rec Conference in #NOLA w/ a celebration at @nordcommission Lemann Playground on Lafitte Greenway. When I took office in 2010, I made a commitment to rebuild NORD into a world class recreation department. We’ve invested $150M. Since 2010, New Orleans Recreation Development Commission has gone from 4 rec centers to 12, 8 pools to 15–and the best is yet to come. Special thanks to @nrpa for building a brand new playground here on the Lafitte Greenway. Thank you to the lovely Joe Brown cheerleaders who put on a special performance at the celebration. This is more than just a playground. This is a community.
