Adopt a Neutral Ground


***Note: As of Fall 2017, Parkway Partners’ Adopt A Neutral Ground program is no longer active.

Community organizations, businesses and private citizens can “adopt” a park, playground, or a neutral ground, which they are then responsible for maintaining.

Not only is adopting a neutral ground, park or playground a great way to contribute to the improvement of your city through beautification, but it’s also a great way to let the public know that you care about your community.  When your personalized sign is seen it encourages others to help or adopt.

Planting of any trees or flowers on the adopted green space requires prior approval from the City of New Orleans Department of Parks and Parkways.

Over 600 neutral grounds have been adopted.  To meet some of our neutral ground partners, click below.
