Swap between city, port will make riverfront more accessible 

The city of New Orleans has acquired two wharves on the Mississippi River, opening up a portion of the riverfront that will give the public contiguous access between Spanish Plaza and Crescent Park in the Bywater.

The port is working with various “hospitality partners” to shore up $15 million to convert the wharves into public park spaces. Some public access to the riverfront is expected to be provided in 2018, according to the news release.
