The Peristyle in New Orleans City Park is undergoing a remodel. The structure was built in 1908 of cast concrete. After the federal levee failures in 2005, which flooded the park with up to 8 feet of water, the Peristyle remained structurally sound but a bit faded on the surface.
The current upgrade involves new paint on that gorgeous ceiling and new LED lighting.
The Peristyle overlooks the lagoon and is a favorite spot for weddings, photographers and visitors. Local musician Anders Osborne shot a music video there last night. If you look closely you can see the iconic lions that sit sentry overlooking the lagoon.
