I wonder if the second skate park was always apart of the plan? I like, except for the fact that want to go with the bottomland hardwood vegetation set. You don't start seeing those trees naturally until you get outside of Baton Rouge or on the Northshore. The New Orleans and Natural Levee sets would have been more appropriate. Honestly I'd rather see coastal prairie before hardwoods in New Orleans.

Pretty sure that those are just two proposed locations for one skate park, from looking at the location of the skate shop(s). I was ecstatic that we were even getting one, it would be phenomenal if we did indeed get two.

Would be great for the city. Notice how many black kids skate nowadays? It's no longer just a white sport. In inner city BR I've seen black kids skating around.

I just hope the few don't ruin it for the lot.

I'd guess that significantly more than half the kids I see skateboarding in NOLA are black.

Same for me, they like to hang in the Riverwalk too.

Looks very cool! How much use for jogging and cycling do you think the trail will get? If not too much, I think the current plan is good. If a fair amount, they should consider separating walkers/joggers from cyclist like they do in Minneapolis with 2 paths separate by 6-12'. They should also have a physical barrier between cyclists and cars/joggers and cars on the on-street sections. Can be as simple as aluminum posts every 4-5'. Also newer bike lane design flip-flops the location of parking lanes and cycling lanes to increase safety .The cycling lane is closest to the sidewalk and the parking/unloading area is closest to traffic lane. This reduces dooring and cyclists having to ride in traffic lane due to bike lane being blocked.
