I've been under the assumption that the park closed before the storm. Or was there another amusement somewhere around NOLA that I may be confusing it with?

After reading these posts it sounds to me like lack of visitors was its main demise ~ the storm could have been an excuse to shut it down for good. But 20' below sea level??? In that case, should a new park be considered, engineers should really, really, really plan to raise that parcel of land somehow. Can be done but would be expensive.

It was pretty much a failure, anyway.
I can't see any way they'd rebuild it.
The "East" is making an excruciatingly
slow recovery. There isn't even an
emergency room east of the Industrial canal.

Not to be disagreeable, but it is a huge exagerration to say the park is at an elevation of -20 feet. Maybe -5 or -6 at the most...if that makes a difference.

Yes, definately no lower than -6ft. I don't think that there's anywhere in the city that is below -10ft.
