Coliseum Square Association
In 1971 the Coliseum Square Association was organized by a group of new Lower Garden District residents who accepted the challenge of protecting the area’s architectural integrity. They successfully fought construction of a second bridge access in the neighborhood, had the Lower Garden District placed on the National Register of Historic Places, and supported a bond issue for the renovation of Coliseum Square Park and its finger parks. Since 1971, the Coliseum Square Association has held annual home tours with neighborhood residents as guides.
An all volunteer group of area residents and concerned business owners, The Coliseum Square Association has continued to create a viable and active community based organization. Eagerly welcoming new residents to the area and to the organization, Coliseum Square Association also works closely with city planners and leaders to insure the protection of the Lower Garden District.
