The former Six Flags New Orleans (2002-05) amusement park lies southeast of the Interstate 10 & 510 junction at New Orleans East. The park, opened in 2000 as Jazz Land, closed for good as flood waters inundated the facility for weeks during September 2005 due to Hurricane Katrina. Costs to repair damage and reopen the park were determined to be prohibitively high and the facility has remained abandoned. Some discussion in 2012 involves the redevelopment of the 100-acre park into an outlet mall. Photo taken 04/20/12.
