Looks good, I think I remember seeing a rendering or too on the news.

Airline Highway Park slated for major transformation

BREC is planning a major overhaul of its Airline Highway Park, better known as the Baton Rouge Fairgrounds.

The organization plans to issue a Request for Proposals by early June for a master plan to transform the 133.3-acre park into one of the system’s signature community parks, which offer more amenities than do neighborhood parks and are designed to serve a broader base.

The parish currently has 12 community parks but demand exists for a 13th, particularly in the high-growth area near the Ascension Parish line, according to a 2014 update to the agency’s strategic plan that identified a service gap in that area.

“If you live in Shenandoah, the closest community park is on Highland Road so there is a need,” says Reed Richard, BREC’s assistant superintendent.

BREC planning $1M education center, master plan for Frenchtown Road Conservation Area

Nearly a decade after acquiring the nearly 500-acre Frenchtown Road Conservation Area, partially bound by the Comite and Amite rivers, BREC is taking steps to upgrade the primitive park, which doesn’t currently have running water or bathrooms. 

Using $800,000 from the $3.6 million given to the park system from FEMA, Assistant Superintendent Reed Richard says BREC plans to start construction on the new center this fall. The center was designed by Baton Rouge-based Fusion Architecture and will be elevated 14 feet in the air. 

The 500-acre park is one of the most diverse habitats BREC owns, says Amanda Takacs, assistant director of natural resource management. Among possible improvements that could be made to the park are additional hiking trails, kayak and canoe launches, educational signage and tree canopy walkways.

I was wondering what the deal was with that algae, but the mild winter issue makes sense.

Maybe we will have a Colder Winter this season??  Should have our first freeze tomorrow night!

Facelifts for Baton Rouge zoo and Greenwood Park begin in earnest next month; see plans here

BREC’s Baton Rouge Zoo: Zoo transformation creates joy, excitement, new memories

The first phase of upgrades started in December 2020 and is expected to take about 18 months. First up is relocating the zoo’s entrance, which is currently on Thomas Road, and building a new entry plaza in the heart of nearby Greenwood Park.
