Grand Opening of Parisite Skatepark

A Tulane City Center Project


    February 28, 2015 - 12:00pm

TSA community,

This weekend is the grand opening of Parisite Skatepark!

The city is hosting the event and the Mayor will have some words to say then there will be DJ's, skating, food, and general good times. 

If you haven't had a chance to stop by and see results of months of design, community engagement, and hard work by many of our TSA students, faculty, and staff we invite you to check it out!  Also on the agenda for the event is a 'Reuben cutting' by the Mayor (Steins is donating a 16' Reuben for the event).

Below is basic information, the Fb event's page for more info, and a list of the great team of the students and faculty who have worked on this project. 

Hope you can join us in celebrating the work of the team and our first student-built project in collaboration with the City of New Orleans.

Saturday Feb. 28th, noon.  Paris Ave at Pleasure Street (under the I-610)
