LIVING WALLPAPER | New Orleans Louisiana ( City Park) | Relax , Meditate, Study, Pray or Whateva.

For over 170 years, New Orleans City Park has provided access to abundant natural and cultural resources to residents of the region and tourists from around the world.  The Park is home to the New Orleans Botanical Garden, Couturie Forest and Arboretum, the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Louisiana Children’s Museum, and the largest grove of mature live oaks in the world, some of which are nearly 800 years old.

The Park’s 1,300 acres make it one of the largest urban parks in the United States, and a popular place to fish on the bayou, picnic, experience safe outdoor play, or engage in athletic pursuits—as evidence by more than 16 million visits each year. With the majority of its visitors, 67%, residing in Orleans and Jefferson parishes, the Park provides walking trails, an urban forest, open space, cultural amenities, and recreation services to the entire community where high poverty rates, significant achievement gaps, poor environmental health, and youth disconnections affect physical and mental health.

        In 1989 my Father died of a heart attack in a brutally hot summer. The ewather and heat have gotten worse since then. When I saw lemons growing on a porch in Nuley NJ it was stunning. Part of me says we have less air pollution than we used to. Has the ozone layer still retreated ? I remember when fans in you hand residence or dept store were normal. Not sub-freezing temperaturex on mass tranist or in every store. We are off-kilter in too may ways. In grammar school I won honorable mention for a Science Fair solar oven in 1966. Watching the west coast burn as we experience micro-climate flooding on the East coast. WHERE ARE WE GOING ? Up, down or sideways ? Venice banned cruise ships. There are glimers of hope with torrential embers on fire.
