Val Riess Recreational Building

Val Riess Park

Rendering of the new Val Riess Park, a 33-acre facility in the heart of Chalmette that promises to be a premier recreational complex when more than $20 million in construction is completed. The work at Val Riess at the northern end of Palmisano Boulevard in Chalmette - financed by a combination of FEMA and Community Development Block Grant funds - is being done in four phases that ultimately will include eight baseball fields, two large concession stands, a 47,000-square foot massive multi-purpose building and a mini-water park.
