new orleans water parkThe owner of Tipitina’s, along with several other developers are now planning on redeveloping the old Bally’s riverboat casino landing in eastern New Orleans.

Their proposal for the massive lakefront property, to be named ‘Tipitina’s Festival Park’, will include:

  • An outdoor amphitheater with a 5,000 capacity.
  • A lazy river and splash park.
  • Water slides and zip lines.
  • A two-story, covered boardwalk with shops.
  • The conversion of the old riverboat terminal into an open-air market.

A re-development of the site would be a huge boost for the city of New Orleans, for both the local music scene, and national tourism to the area.

When Katrina gutted the riverboat terminal and left the property in shambles, Bally’s terminated its lease left the land in the hands of the governor’s office, leaving a major blight on the city’s east side.
