Playground Opens in New Orleans City Park

New Sir Cumference Playground Opens in New Orleans City Park

New Orleans (August 6, 2015)

WHAT: New Orleans City Park will cut the ribbon on a new playground at the already popular Festival Grounds. Located between Christian Brothers School and the Reunion Shelter on Friedrichs Avenue, the playground sits inside a paved concrete circle. It is that circle shape that lent its geometric details to the playgrounds name: Sir Cumference.

The Sir Cumference playground includes climbing areas, monkey bars, a slide, balance beams, and musical instruments for kids to play. The playground is geared towards children ages 5 to 12 years old. Adult supervision is recommended at all times. Parking is easy for parents in the lot just a few feet from the playground. Restrooms are located on the opposite side of the Reunion Shelter.

This playground joins the City Park family as one of four playgrounds in the Park. The other playgrounds are the Stanley Ray Playground (on Dreyfous), the Blue Starbucks Playground (on Stadium), and Storyland (on Victory).
