Duncan Plaza

Duncan Plaza

New Orleans

In New Orleans, Duncan Plaza is a point of convergence that connects several distinct and diverse downtown neighborhoods. Until now, though, the potential of this public space to become a treasured community place has yet to be fully realized. With support from Southwest Airlines Heart of the Community grant, the Downtown Development District and Arts Council of New Orleans hope to capture the city’s unique character and charm within this park, making it a valuable local asset and a springboard for social life and cultural expression. By engaging with all the existing users of this plaza, this project aims to transform Duncan Plaza from a forgotten space between neighborhoods into a quality place that connects people from all walks of life, helping to build community and generate long-term resilience.
