Marsalis Harmony new name for Palmer Park

Councilperson Joe Giarrusso informs us that in District A, Ordinance 33,356 will change the name of Palmer Park to Marsalis Harmony Park in honor of local jazz patriarch, Ellis Marsalis. 

"Ellis Marsalis and his family lived near the park, and they have enriched this community and the surrounding neighborhoods," Councilmember Giarrusso said. "I have been in contact with the neighborhoods most affected by this name change from the jump. By working together with the nearest neighbors and the Marsalis family, we've 'harmonized' ideas into a celebration of the Marsalis family, their impact on music, and the importance of working together: Marsalis Harmony Park."
