The Conservancy Model - New Orleans City Park

The Conservancy Model


Our Continued Journey

We’re turning over a new leaf and ushering in a new level of care that will streamline management, operations, programming, membership, and fundraising—all for the betterment of City Park. Following a governance model used nationwide among signature urban parks, the City Park Improvement Association has transitioned day to day operations to the newly formed 501c3 nonprofit City Park Conservancy.

 

A Conservancy for Everyone

A conservancy is a private, nonprofit park-benefit organization that supports a public park by raising money, overseeing operations and management, implementing capital improvements, and developing community programming under a mutually-agreed-upon plan with a government agency. City Park Conservancy will ensure best practice management of City Park, offering better services, and supporting the Park’s vital connection to the community.

 

A Promise to You

City Park has been entrusted with the memories of our guests and community. These memories are enshrined in the trees and flora. From weddings, to birthdays, to family reunions, your first fish or your first team win, City Park preserves the memories of generations past and offers an essential space for future generations. City Park Conservancy does not take this responsibility lightly and will continue to offer a space for creating memories, year over year.

 

Support Your Park Now

City Park continues to rely on multiple income sources including funding earned from attractions such as Storyland and City Putt, as well as some limited governmental support. The Conservancy’s nonprofit status ensures that philanthropic funding goes directly to City Park. By supporting your Park, you will help our region’s most beloved greenspace continue to thrive.
