City Park Upgrades

New Orleans’ City Park is in for some upgrades for the New Year.

City Park is on track to roll out the $4 million, 50-acre City Park Festival Grounds by 2013, officials announced, in addition to a new mini-golf course and splash park.

The festival grounds will become the home of the city’s annual Voodoo Music Experience and officials apparently hope the new digs will attract other cultural events as well.
