The Woodlands vision is the culmination of work over a ten-year period where the distinct history and attributes of the 10,000-acre peninsula formed by Orleans and Plaquemines Parishes were identified and then congealed into a proposal for educational and recreational greenways and trails.    As our community grows, it will be imperative to the livelihood of wildlife to connect greenway corridors to prevent species from being trapped between islands of development.   Woodlands Trail is partially funded by the Louisiana Recreational Trails program by the Lt. Governor's Department of Cultural Recreation Tourism with funds from the Federal Highway’s Administration.
