“The Algiers Rotary Club is like the Little Engine That Could”, said park CEO Bob Becker. “The Algiers Rotary Club has been instrumental in raising more than $350,000 for the park since Katrina.
Improvements include the beautiful live oaks and crepe myrtles along Lelong Avenue, softball field construction and lighting of a soccer field. Aside from their financial support, they also regularly roll up their sleeves and volunteer at the park. We are truly indebted to the Algiers Rotary Club.”
Description: Forty live oaks and 160 crepe myrtles greet visitors at the entrance to the park along Lelong Avenue.
