Parisite Skate Park: New Orleans, LA

Client: Tulane City Center

Summary: Parisite Skate Park is an urban skate park located at the intersection of Paris Avenue and Pleasure Street under the Interstate 610 Overpass in Gentilly. Dana Brown & Associates partnered with the Tulane City Center to establish a Stormwater Management Plan for the site, which receives excess runoff from the interstate above. Our design utilizes native plants and a specialty soil mix to promote ground infiltration and bioretention on site. By introducing elements of Green Infrastructure to the skate park, DBA has helped to reduce localized flooding and make the park more accessible year round.
