Confetti Park and Delcazal Park are operated in partnership with the New Orleans Recreation Development Commission. We abide by the rules and regulations set forth by NORDC for public parks and playgrounds. Please follow the rules posted in the parks to ensure the personal safety of you and your children.
Our two existing parks, Confetti and Delcazal, were built in 2000 and 2003, respectively. At the time of construction, soil tests were conducted and remediation occurred.
The most recent soil tests for Delcazal were conducted in August 2016, and for Confetti Park in March 2017. Lead levels came in as “None to very low” to “Low.”
Each year, thanks to generous volunteer efforts of our neighbors, new soil and mulch is added in Confetti Park in high-traffic areas where grass does not grow. At Delcazal Park, grass thrives and play areas are covered with rubber playground tiles.
Confetti Kids, Inc. is currently fundraising for a third park to be located at the corner of Homer and Elmira, to be called The Lot. We have already connected with the Lead Lab project at Tulane University to make sure that the soil in our new park will be healthy and safe!
We encourage all New Orleans families to educate yourselves about the dangers of lead contamination in homes. Download this toolkit from the Department of Health & Hospitals for the State of Louisiana for more information.
