MARSH ISLAND

The marsh island is a very good area to sightsee and learn about the endemic flora and fauna of Louisiana, and is dedicated as a bird sanctuary, as is the entire park. This area is so different from the other areas found in the park, because of its natural vegetation and animal life living within. The park is working with state agencies to redevelop the marsh island area to more closely achieve the marshland objective of the original master plan. This will include improved circulation and aeration.

OPEN MEADOW
