The Trust for Public Land, in partnership with City Park, developed this trail and meadow to commemorate the
indomitable spirit of the residents of Greater New Orleans in rebuilding their homes and neighborhoods after
Hurricane Katrina. We believe parks and open spaces are necessary for livable communities, and we believe a
flourishing City Park is key to a healthy and vibrant New Orleans. We gratefully acknowledge donations from
hundreds of individuals and families from all over the United States. We are especially grateful to the
following individuals, foundations and corporations for their leadership and generous support.
