Plans unveiled for Al Copeland memorial


Metairie, La. - Plans for an Al Copeland memorial statue and performance stage were unveiled  Friday morning.

After months of discussion and redesign, members of the Lafreniere Park Advisory Board, the Lafreniere Park Patrons Board, Councilman Ben Zahn and Al Copeland, Jr. agreed upon the final design for a tribute to the late Al Copeland, Sr. to be placed in Lafreniere park.

The new design will now feature a sprawling serenity garden, memorial statue and performance stage that better fits the park's master plan.

Initial designs for the Copeland memorial were rejected by Councilman Zahn, park advisory board members and park patron board members because the designs were not considered to be appropriate for the park.

No time frame has been given as to when the memorial will be completed.
