Levee Bike Path, Kenner


Jefferson Parish offers a range of biking trails and parks. A twenty-two mile asphalt bike path atop the east bank levee of the Mississippi River spans three parishes, including Jefferson, Orleans and St. Charles. The Gretna Social Friday EZ Rides in downtown historic Gretna is a fun way to connect with friends and make new ones. Residents and visitors are welcome to light up their bikes and join the ride! The annual Tour de Jefferson is one of the premier cycling events in the region, bringing riders from around the country to Jefferson Parish each year.

In 2014 the Jefferson Parish Council adopted the Bicycle Master Plan which identifies clear, cross-Parish routes for cyclists, and organizes capital projects by priority. The plan lays out a strategy for dedicated bike lanes and greenways, a place where motorists learn to steer clear of cyclists. The American Planning Association, Louisiana Chapter, awarded the Jefferson Parish Bicycle Master Plan with the 2016 Planning Excellence Award for transportation. Read more on this multi-year plan.
