Pontchartrain Park Neighborhood

“Pontchartrain Park is a suburban-style neighborhood, with 200 acres of greenspace for parks, playgrounds, lagoons and the Joe Bartholomew Golf Course. Two major streets run through the neighborhood from Chef Menteur Highway, Press and Congress Drives. All other streets are curvilinear and prevent passage out of the neighborhood, creating a degree of privacy and pedestrian safety. It is one of the first areas in New Orleans designed to provide home ownership to middle and upper income African Americans and one of the last Gentilly neighborhoods to be developed.[Read more in the Neighborhood Snapshot]
