Help ensure the enduring legacy of our wonderful park.

Plant the seeds of your legacy in City Park. The first one hundred acres, that would one day grow to become the 1,300 acres of City Park, were left to the City of New Orleans in a will. By including City Park in your estate plans, you can be part of one of New Orleans’ greatest legacies and ensure that future generations will enjoy its splendor. Making a planned gift is a great way to demonstrate your commitment to City Park while achieving your own personal, financial, estate-planning, and philanthropic goals. You could even increase the size of your estate and/or reduce the tax burden on your heirs.
