Community | Louisiana Products
June 21, 2013
How could we possibly consider being a Louisiana themed park, without using Louisiana Seafood?? Many other Louisiana foods & products will be featured throughout the park. A small corner market is also planned inside the park that showcases our wonderful Louisiana food products and mixes for guests to bring home with them.
Beyond having Louisiana products on our shelves, we have also planned a few attractions that highlight the industries that employ our people. One of those is the re-invented log flume ride. The flume redesign starts with the ride vehicle itself that will have a shape inspired by a pirogue. Your pirogue will take you through cane country where you will experience the process of taking sugar from the fields to your table. During scheduled times, craftsmen will demonstrate the art of making a pirogue outside of the attraction.
We are continuing to look for more opportunities that will allow the park to become an even greater asset to the community.

The Jazzland Proposal
The Paidia Company submitted a proposal to re-open the park as a true celebration of Louisiana by connecting the dots of community, history, identity, and artistry in a living testimonial to our spirit and pride. Additionally, we propose to add a water park and movie back lot to the site.
This proposal for Jazzland includes locally owned businesses and is working with area youth organizations to offer internship programs and art & music education programs at the park.
Why Save Jazzland?
Families of New Orleans would like to be able to bring their children to the park again. The City is trying to attract more tourist by showing them that there is more to the City than Bourbon Street. Jazzland is a perfect fit to add to that campaign and to attract more families to visit.
The infrastructure is already there for it to be a THEME PARK. Historically, the park attracted over 800,000 guests annually while operating seasonally and competing with Astroworld. Today, the closest regional park is over 450 miles away and we plan to operate year-round.
