Paul Habans Green Schoolyard

stormwater management

Trust for Public Land
New Orleans, LA

The Habans Green Schoolyard is the first project of the Trust for Public Land’s Green Schoolyard Initiative in New Orleans. The project consists of two complementary work products: a Master Plan for the entire 5-acre school site, and the detailed design for a Phase 1 project. The master plan for the site responds to the needs of both the school and community for spaces for recreation, walking trails, educational enrichment, and stormwater management. The first phase of the master plan to be built consists of an innovative wood playground, rain gardens, a chalkboard wall, benches and bold-colored painted stripes on the existing basketball court.
