Reminder: Please join us as Mayor Melvin "Kip" Holden, the East Baton Rouge City Parish, Louisiana DOTD, and the Downtown Development District break ground on the North Boulevard Promenade section of the Downtown Greenway on Thursday, May 5th at 10am.
The Downtown Greenway is a proposed multi-phase 2.75 mile interconnected network of bike/pedestrian pathways connecting Baton Rouge's public parks and recreational facilities, disjointed communities, and cultural attractions.
The North Boulevard phase of the Downtown Greenway is the area on North Boulevard from 5th Street to East Boulevard and will feature a shared use path and garden walk that provides a clear connection to North Boulevard Town Square. This phase will accommodate the downtown commuters and anyone looking for a variety of fitness uses including walking, biking, and other activities. It is a destination that promotes active and passive recreation.
Please join us for this exciting groundbreaking!
