Lark in the Park

Enjoy a fabulous gala to celebrate New Orleans City Park!
Ten years ago, in March 2005, the Board of Commissioners of the City Park Improvement Association approved a master plan to return a world-class urban park to the citizens of Greater New Orleans before the city’s 300th anniversary in 2018. No one would expect the devastation that City Park would face six months later in August 2005. With the insurmountable support of individuals and organizations like yours, New Orleans City Park has already undergone so many improvements that it can easily be considered one of the premiere urban parks in the world.

It’s time to celebrate all of these wonderful accomplishments, and ensure that future generations of people living in or visiting New Orleans can create memories that will live on forever. Join us in this unforgettable opportunity to Celebrate Your Park and Your Past, Present, and Future Memories.
