City Park Super Saturday Volunteer Day
NEW ORLEANS. Gustav huffed and he puffed but he could not blow City Park, or Storylands Three Little Pigs exhibit down. Storyland and the rest of the park do, however, have a lot of debris that needs to be removed.
The parks regularly scheduled Super Saturday will take place on Saturday, September 6th from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. Volunteers will meet in front of Storyland and are asked to bring, rakes, plastic bags, gloves, and other garden tools if they have them. Volunteers should also bring any cold drinks they wish to consume.
The park will officially reopen on Monday, September 8. The Parkview Café in the Casino Building will reopen Monday morning along with the parks administrative offices. The Botanical Garden will reopen on Tuesday. We anticipate that tennis, Storyland, the Amusement Park, Pan American Stadium, Tad Gormley Stadium and THE NORTH GOLF COURSE(!) will be open for operations and football games by next weekend.
