A big part of the Confetti Kids mission is to ensure the safety and beauty of our public playgrounds. We strongly believe that taking care of our neighborhood playgrounds is a commitment to our children’s future as productive members of an inclusive neighborhood community.
Confetti Park – 451 Pelican Avenue, Algiers Point New Orleans, LA, 70114.
This friendly and shady little park is located in the heart of Algiers Point, and has playground equipment suitable for children aged 2-12. There are picnic tables (with painted chess and checkers setups) under the cypress trees, and a small grass/cedar chipped area suitable for running and playing with tractors. The park is enclosed by a gorgeous sculpture that serves as fence, created by artist Steve Kline.
Delcazal Park – Located at the corner of Verret, Opelousas and Seguin Streets, Algiers Point New Orleans, LA, 70114.
This triangle-shaped park has a larger grassy area suitable for casual games of soccer or net ball. Playground equipment is targeted toward older children, and there is a large tiled area with swings. Benches and a water fountain are available. This is the site of our annual Spooktacular Halloween Party and Easter Egg Hunt.
The Lot – Located at the corner of Homer and Elmira
Plans are underway for a third park in a part of the neighborhood that is a park desert. Confetti Kids is fundraising now and will be working with local residents and community leaders including Baakir Tyehimba, owner of Blackstar Books & Caffe, to plan the kind of park it will be. Baakir has long been advocating for recreational spaces for children and is the inspiration for the film The Lot, directed by Russell Blanchard.
