City Park Conservancy (CPC) is seeking responses for Master Planning Services. CPC is the 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation that manages and oversees the day-to-day operations of New Orleans City Park, a 1,300-acre public park in New Orleans, Louisiana founded 170 years ago. The nonprofit was formed to oversee the 130-year-old City Park Improvement Association, a state agency.
The Master Plan process will foster an innovative re-envisioning of the Park, grounded in serving the greater good, addressing diverse community needs, deepening the historical and cultural context, improving environmental resiliency, and creating a dynamic and enduring sense of place. Implementation of the Plan will be supported by a capital campaign.
CPC is now seeking an experienced and highly regarded firm to lead the Master Planning process and create a bold Plan for City Park’s future, grounded in its unique setting and history and in the needs of the community. The successful firm will have a strong background in public parks, recreation, ecological sciences, disaster recovery and resiliency, park operations, and planning and design services.
