Kiwanis of Lafayette thanks Elizabeth "EB" Brooks, Executive Director of Lafayette Central Park, Inc., for speaking to us today.
EB informed the club about the recent history surrounding the city's acquisition of the former horse farm property from UL and the role that Lafayette Central Park, Inc. will have in developing it into a world-class park.
We learned more about the specific plans for the entire tract. It was exciting to learn that construction of Phase I, which includes the area of the park from Johnston Street to Coulee Mine, will begin as soon as the Summer of 2016!
We encourage you to visit the park's website and like and follow them on their Facebook Page so that you can keep up to date with their plans.
