PELTIER PARK WALKING TRAIL
The Parks and Recreation Department, located in Peltier Park, has a new look these days. If you walk or drive through Peltier Park, you will find a walking trail staked with little pink ribbons waiving in the breeze.
Through local funds and a grant from Recreational Trails Program, the City is developing a one-half mile-walking trail in Peltier Park.
In a recent study, Mayor Charles Caillouet concluded, “the most popular forms of recreation are walking, bicycling and jogging.”
This project will provide a compatible facility use for students and faculty members of Nicholls State University and area schools, including South Thibodaux Elementary, East Thibodaux Junior High, West Thibodaux Junior High, St. Joseph Elementary and E.D. White Catholic High School.
The walking trail is expected to be ready for use by June 15, 2002.
