Gretna City Park

The Gretna City Park project is a $7 million renovation, transforming 80 acres of green space into a park that is now capable of holding an additional 6.5 million gallons of stormwater. With hundreds of new trees and expanded detention ponds, the park uses nature-based solutions for water management and ecosystem restoration. Funded as part of Louisiana’s LA SAFE program, the project is one of ten across the state. The renovations aim to reduce flooding and offer recreational opportunities to residents, including 1.5 miles of trails, a 1,500 square foot pavilion, a kayak launch, fishing piers, a bog garden, and wildflower meadow.
