View All Parks & Rec

In Terrebonne Parish, a project titled "Field of Dreams" is underway for an expansive site called Bayou Country Sports Park. The park will have 30 fields built for softball, baseball and soccer, as well as tennis courts and a dog park. The facility will be one of the most comprehensive outdoor sport complexes in the region. Facilities featuring basketball and volleyball courts will allow for a variety of indoor activity.

Children can enjoy a playground with a splash park, as well as a pond suitable for canoeing. Pavilions, plenty of parking and easy highway access round out this multi-use facility.

The Great Lawn and Recreation Center, now entering its second phase of development, is a proposed 140-acre regional park and sports complex that offers a variety of amenities. The complex will provide a main, public gathering space for casual play, overflow field sports and entertainment space for concerts, fairs and festivals. The Recreation Center is conceived to be a multipurpose building with two gymnasiums, meeting rooms, health and fitness opportunities and a potential performing arts venue. The southern side includes an elevated covered area that will double as a stage for performances directed towards the Great Lawn.
