The Park will truly be a “passive” park with walking trails, a boardwalk, a single restroom (required by Louisiana State Parks) and interpretive kiosk. The Park’s hours of operation will align with the Trace, 7:00 AM - 7:30 PM. All visitor gates will be secured at 7:30 PM. Secure gate entrances from the existing boat launch parking area on Main St. will only be accessible by St. Tammany Parish maintenance crews, construction personnel and Trace Rangers.
